HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this situation.Please tell me what information I can provide for you in this regard. What is the question?
Thank you. I am not sure of what information you are seeking. However, in 2012 the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found that it was “constitutionally sound” for Nevada to apply tough new retroactive requirements for registered sex offenders under a state law.
It will apply retroactively, unfortunately. And if the offense originally committed was a category A assault (NRS 200.366), lewdness with a child (NRS 201.230), or any number of other sexual offenses the offender can be re categorized as a Tier 3
You can consider consulting with a local defense attorney to see if there are any appeals of the 9th circuits decision and maybe they can assist in challenging the change of tiers.
Perhaps, while you are still a Tier I offender, you can have a local attorney file a petition requesting the court for an early release from registration. That can be filed after you have registered for at least 10 consecutive years
