The current ALI project Model Penal Code: Sexual Assault and Related Offenses is a re-examination of Article 213 of the Model Penal Code. This post presents Section 213.12 (A-J) of the most recent project draft (Council Draft No. 10, printed on December 13, 2019).
This Section was presented to ALI’s Council in January 2020 for discussion only. This content has not been approved by ALI’s Council or by ALI’s membership. Therefore this text does not represent the position of the Institute on any of the issues with which it deals at this time.
The Sections included are as follows:
Section 213.12A. Registration for Law Enforcement Purposes
Section 213.12B. Notification of the Obligation to Register and Associated Duties
Section 213.12C. Time of Initial Registration
Section 213.12D. Information Required In Registration
Section 213.12E. Duty to Keep Registration Current
Section 213.12F. Duration of Registration Requirement
Section 213.12G. Failure to Register
Section 213.12H. Access to Registry Information
Section 213.12I. Additional Collateral Consequences of Conviction
Section 213.12J. Relief from Obligation to Register, Associated Duties, and Additional Collateral Consequences
After the printing of Council Draft No. 10, the Reporters issued updated text. The Reporters plan to remove the “roadmap” for Sections 213.12A-213.12J from Section 213.12A(4) and replace it with a freestanding Section 213.12 preceding Section 213.12A. The update may be downloaded here.
