If a sex offender was released from registering by court order

This answer was rated:

If a sex offender was released from registering by court order in one state does he have have to register in another.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I’m going to assist you with your question.

Law Pro :

Can you explain the release from registering by the court order with more information?

Customer:

He no longer is required to register as a sex offender in that state.

Customer:

He still has the conviction on his record,but deemed no threat to society.

Customer:

Convicted of cruelty to children.

Law Pro :

The law is - if someone must register in the jurisdiction where he was convicted then they must register in a foreign state too when they establishes a residence, becomes employed or attends school, etc. Moreover, the convicted person must also register in a foreign state regardless of the conviction state if they have been convicted of a "substantially similar charge" as those requiring registration in that state.

Law Pro :

So it all depends on the state where he's moving to - if they require those convicted of cruelty to children to register - then he must register there regardless if he doesn't have to currently in the conviction state.
