AN ACT CONCERNING SEXUAL OFFENDER REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN PERSONS GRANTED TEMPORARY LEAVE BY THE PSYCHIATRIC SECURITY REVIEW BOARD
SUMMARY: This act requires persons found not guilty of crimes due to mental disease or defect who are granted temporary leave by the Psychiatric Security Review Board to register as sex offenders if the crime for which they were acquitted requires sex offender registration. These include crimes against minors, sexual offenses (violent or nonviolent), and felonies found by the sentencing court to have been committed for sexual purposes.
By law, the board may grant temporary leave to people who were (1) found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect and (2) confined to a hospital for psychiatric disabilities or placed with the developmental services commissioner. The board may grant such leave when the hospital's superintendent or commissioner requests it.
EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013
