State works to meet sex offender requirements

Posted on December 16th, 2009 No Comments

The state’s Sex Offender Registry Board is implementing federal guidelines that will strengthen registration requirements. The deadline is July 2010.

The state of Massachusetts still has questions about whether or not they should implement this new system. Non-compliance could result in a loss of $1 million of federal crime prevention funding.

The Sex Offender Registration Notification Act (SORNA), creates a national registry and allows the information accessible to the public. It also requires that the stateĀ  meet a set of standards when registering sex offenders.

If you or someone you love has been accused of a sexual crime, contact the Massachusetts sex crime lawyers, James Powderly by calling 503-343-0676.
