Changing the Laws: Part 5 - Updating Information

301.45 Sex offender registration.
http://nxt.legis.state.wi.us/nxt/gat...tats&jd=301.45

While one can understand the importance of updated information on the Registry, but to make it a criminal offense to not tell the State of Wisconsin that you are leaving the state, subject to extradition and more prison time is absurd. That is what this section of law is talking about. It does not state that you could go to prison, but from studying the cases that have come through the court system in my county, I can say that the majority sex offense related problems stem from this registry law. The State of Wisconsin will extradite the offender throw them in jail and prison. Even if they have registered in the state they moved to, because they failed to inform the Registry of their departure from the state they are now breaking a law.
(4) UPDATED INFORMATION.

In addition to the requirements under sub. (3), a person who is covered under sub. (1g) shall update information under sub. (2) (a) as follows:

(a) Except as provided in par. (b), whenever any of the information under sub. (2) (a) changes, the person shall provide the department with the updated information within 10 days after the change occurs.

(b) If the person is on parole or extended supervision and the person knows that any of the information under sub. (2) (a) 5. will be changing, the person shall provide the department with the updated information before the change in his or her address occurs. If the person is on parole or extended supervision and any of the information under sub. (2) (a) 5. changes but the person did not know before the change occurred that his or her address would be changing, the person shall provide the department with the updated information within 24 hours after the change in his or her address occurs.

(4m) INFORMATION CONCERNING A MOVE TO OR SCHOOLING OR EMPLOYMENT IN ANOTHER STATE.

In addition to the requirements under subs. (3) and (4), a person who is covered under sub. (1g) and who is changing his or her residence from this state to another state, is becoming a student in another state or is to be employed or carrying on a vocation in another state shall, no later than 10 days before he or she moves out of this state, begins school or begins employment or his or her vocation, notify the department that he or she is changing his or her residence from this state, is beginning school in another state or is beginning employment or the carrying on of a vocation in another state. The person shall also inform the department of the state to which he or she is moving his or her residence, the state in which he or she will be in school or the state in which he or she will be employed or carrying on a vocation. Upon receiving notification from a person under this subsection, the department shall do all of the following:

(a) Inform the person whether the state to which the person is moving, the state in which the person will be in school or the state in which the person will be employed or carrying on a vocation has sex offender registration requirements to which the person may be subject and, if so, the name of the agency to contact in that state for information concerning those requirements.
(b) Inform the agency responsible for sex offender registration in the state to which the person is moving, in which the person will be in school or in which the person will be employed or carrying on a vocation that the person is moving to the state, beginning school in the state or beginning employment or carrying on a vocation in the state, and provide the agency of the other state with all of the information specified in sub. (2) (a).

(4r) RESTRICTION ON CERTAIN REGISTRANTS ESTABLISHING OR CHANGING RESIDENCE.

No person covered under sub. (1g) who is on parole or extended supervision may establish a residence or change his or her residence unless he or she has complied with all of the applicable requirements of subs. (2) (e), (3) (b) and (4) (b).
These are the kinds of laws and regulations that you would expect to see in a Communist Russia or a Communist China, the state regulating to the point that if you breathe you could be violating a law. This is over and above the debt that has been paid to society. Do are District Attorneys really have that little to do? There have been news stories and sob stories here in the State of Wisconsin about how they don't make enough money for their work load, they have too many cases. Which is just a product of their own insanity when it comes to these laws.

All of us need to pull together, sex offenders, families, and friends, to get the awareness out that these laws need to be changed.
