Legislation Would Give Limited Relief from Sex Offender Registration for Youthful Offenders

Posted by Steven Sherick | Apr 05, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Arizona Legislature has passed H.B. 2539 and  it awaits the Governor's signature to become law.  The statute would provide limited relief to offenders who were convicted of sexual conduct with a minor and the crime was committed when the offender was 22 years old or younger.  Among other requirements for relief are that the victim of the offense was older than 15, the criminal activity involved only one victim and the offense was consensual.  The law would also require that the offender have been placed on probation and have not violated any of the sex offender terms of that probation.  If you have a questions about sex offender registration, please contact the attorneys at Sherick & Bleier.
