AZ: Transient sex offenders not bound by 72-hour notice

[The Seattle Times]

PHOENIX (AP) — The state Supreme Court says registered sex offenders without addresses or permanent places of residence aren’t subject to Arizona’s requirement to provide notice of address changes within 72 hours.

Instead, the court’s unanimous ruling Friday says those offenders only have to register as transients at least every 90 days.

The ruling overturns a lower court’s ruling that upheld a man’s felony conviction for failing to notify law enforcement officials of a new residence or address within 72 hours after he left a halfway house and began living near an intersection.

The court’s ruling says state laws on registration requirements are ambiguous but that a person who is transient can’t be required to provide notice of a residence that he doesn’t have.

  1. Stay outraged

    90 day is still to harsh.. Home or no home, registration is still an unnecessary evil !

      If I was homeless and had to check in every 72 hours I’d just sleep in the police station parking lot and every 3 days the cops could peek out the window to check on me. I’d hold up a sign that reads “STILL HERE.”
