NV: Sex offender registry changes will impact Lyon County numbers

[ 5/4/18]

The number of Lyon County sex offenders registered on the Department of Public Safety’s website will increase with the implementation of a new statewide sex offender registration law.

Nevada Legislature in 2007 approved AB579 to comply with the federal Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act passed the year before. The law changes how sex offenders are classified and who must register with the DPS. The bill has been hung up in legislation for more than 10 years, but on April 27 the Nevada Supreme Court lifted the most recent stay on the legislation, clearing the way for its implementation.

“It’s effective immediately,” said Julie Butler, administrator for DPS’ records, communications and compliance division.

There are four tiers of sex offenders, Tier 3 (most serious) to Tier 0 (least serious.) Previously, only Tier 2 and Tier 3 offenders registered online. Under the new legislation, all offenders must register with DPS, and changes in the way offenders are classified raises the number of higher-tiered offenders. Under the legislation, an offender’s tier level is based strictly on his or her conviction and the age of the victim, without consideration of other circumstances. Prior to the changes all Nevada adult offenders and certain juvenile offenders were assessed by mental health workers and rated on their risk of re-offending.

To paint a ballpark picture, Butler said under the old system there were about 300 Tier 3 offenders in the state. Under the new system, that number skyrockets roughly tenfold, to around 3,000, but the definition of who a Tier 3 offender is changes.

I’m sure that many of you who go back during and even before the CARSOL years have been following this valiant struggle in Nevada ! But I can’t find anything on the actual decision that the article refers to. Can one of you post it ? Thank you.

Doesn’t mention Washoe County but I am sick to my stomach with anxiety and fear. I cannot guarantee I won’t do something rash if I end up affected. Going up a level could ruin everything for me, as I’m currently tier 1, annual, and not publicly listed.

Thank you for the case reference. At least Maggie McLetchie stalled it for two years ! This monster goes back retroactively to the 1950’s doesn’t it ? Wasn’t Sodomy in Nevada a sex offense back then ? I hope there will be another stalling tactic.

Tier 1 with Victims under 18 on web. Most are bumped up. Tier 3 means life and ever 90 days check in. Adam Walsh Act at its worst. Some big talk about fixing this then they abruptly stopped bringing it up. They did pass better legislature for minors. AB 579

Thank you Maggie McLetchie and crew. Hope you can work some more magic, Nevada knows Sorna is wrong

Get outta this SCAM state ! When I go for a convention I stay longer than the 48 hours and do NOT register there ! I get a lottery ticket in CA at stateline then go back (yea its a 80 mile trip) but I can legit say I havent been on the state more than 48 hours ! Never drop a dime to the state for gambling either (dont feed the machine) !

If anyone has any updates/further info on this, please share. I’m literally losing sleep over this. Haven’t heard back from McLetchie/Shell as of yet but I imagine they’re very busy.

Spoke to a supervisor at the SO registration unit. The law is in full effect. Going in to report a change (new job, etc..) could trigger your re-registration at new level. I don’t mean to panic anyone, but this lady was very clear that they are free to enforce it immediately. I advise maintaining our reporting responsibilities.

Their current plan is to send letters by Sep 1, with October slated as beginning of full enforcement.

Im suprised to not hear anything on the newa about this

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
