Amends GS 14-208.7, concerning sex offender registration. Adds a new subsection (a3), requiring any person who has ever been convicted of a reportable conviction and has not been required to register for that conviction under any other provision of law to register for that conviction, pursuant to Article 27A of GS Chapter 14, if the person meets any of four criteria listed. Current law GS 14-208.6(4) defines reportable conviction. A person is required to register for the prior reportable conviction on or before October 6, 2017 if: (1) on October 1, 2017, the person is required to register for another offense pursuant to Article 27A or (2) on October 1, 2017, the person is on probation, parole, or post-release supervision for any criminal offense. A person is required to register under this provision as provided in the provisions of existing subsection (a) if: (1) on October 1, 2017, the person is serving an active term of imprisonment for any criminal offense or (2) on or after October 1, 2017, the person is convicted for any criminal offense.
Provides that a person is not required to register pursuant to new subsection (a3) if: (1) the conviction of a reportable conviction prior to October 1, 2017, was not for an aggravated offense as defined in GS 14‑208.6(1a); (2) the conviction occurred 30 years or more prior to the date the person is required to register pursuant to this subsection; and (3) the person has no other reportable convictions requiring registration under Article 27A.
Effective October 1, 2017.
