AN ACT TO AMEND THE LAW REGARDING SEX OFFENDERS ON CERTAIN PREMISES TO ADDRESS THE RULING IN DOE V. COOPER.
House amendment makes the following change to the 2nd edition.
Amends GS 15A-1460 to enact new subsection (3a) to define the term formal inquiry to mean the stage of an investigation when the Commission has entered into a signed agreement with the original claimant and the Commission has made efforts to notify the victim, as the term applies to Article 92 of GS Chapter 15A (provisions governing the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission).
Changes the effective date of the act to August 1, 2016 (was, December 1, 2016), and provides that the act applies to any claim filed on or after that date and any claim pending on that date (was, applies to claims of factual innocence made on or after the effective date). Also provides that nothing in the act abates a claim filed prior to the effective date or invalidates any action taken on a claim prior to the effective date.
