Legislative Development: New York Strengthens Megan's Law

Legislation that expands and strengthens New York Megan's Law by lengthening the amount of time sex offenders remain on the State's Sex Offender Registry was signed into law by Governor George E. Pataki this past week. Without this legislation being enacted, Level 1 and Level 2 sex offenders, who have been on the State's Sex Offender Registry for 10 years, would be removed from the registry as of Saturday, January 21. The new law requires that Level 3 sex offenders remain on the Sex Offender Registry for life; that Level 2 sex offenders remain on Registry for life, but could petition a court to be removed from the Registry after 30 years; and that Level 1 sex offenders would remain on the Registry for 20 years.
