    Amends GS 14-208.16(a) to prohibit registered sex offenders from knowingly residing within 1,000 feet of any public or nonpublic school or childcare center. This bill amends the subsection to clarify that it applies to any registrant who did not establish his or her residence prior to August 16, 2006. Makes conforming changes to SL 2006-247.

    Establishes that a person required by this Article to register who willfully fails to register including failure to register with the sheriff in the county designated by the person, pursuant to GS 14-208.8, as his or her expected county of residence, is guilty of a Class F felony.

    Provides that when a person commits a violation in regards to the registering provisions of this act, any law enforcement officer can and will immediately arrest the person, regardless of jurisdiction.

    A person arrested pursuant to (a1) is subjected to the jurisdiction that includes the sheriff's office in the county where the person failed to register. If not physically present there, they will be transferred to that jurisdiction, with legal proceedings to occur there as well.
