Please provide the full term of the parole, the charges convicted of, and was the parole transfered intrastate?
Thanks for the information. Under Nebraska law anyone who is convicted of a sex offense, was on probation for a sex offense or moved into the state having been convicted of a sex offense after January1, 1997 must register as a sex offender.
Unfortunately as of January 1, 1997 your boyfriend was still on probation and had an out of state conviction for a sex offense and under the Nebraska law is required to register.
He is an excerpt from the law:
Offenders Required to Register:
A person is required to register who, as of January 1, 1997: Pleads guilty to or is found guilty of any crime(s) requiring registration; Is on probation or parole or incarcerated for any of the crimes requiring registration; Is released from incarceration, parole, probation for any of the crimes requiring registration; Moves into the state of Nebraska having pleaded guilty or been found guilty of any offense that is substantially equivalent to the crimes requiring registration in Nebraska.
Hope this helps,
