HCS/HB 1151 - This act removes an exemption from registration on the Sexual Offender Registry when a registrant is no longer required to register and his or her name must be removed from the registry under the provisions of Section 589.414, RSMo.
The act also removes sexual misconduct involving a child under Section 566.083, if it is a first offense and the punishment is less than one year, from Tier I of the registry. A first offense of sexual misconduct involving a child under Section 566.083, whether a misdemeanor or felony, remains on Tier II of the registry. It also changes sexual abuse in the second degree, child molestation in the second degree as it existed prior to January 1, 2017, and sexual conduct with a nursing facility resident or vulnerable person in the first degree on Tier I of the registry from when the punishment is less than a year to if the offense is a misdemeanor. Additionally, the act adds certain offenses to Tier I and certain offenses to Tier II.
The act also specifies that if an offender subject to lifetime supervision moves to a different state under an interstate compact, the person may stay in the receiving state and the Parole Board must defer to the standards and supervision of the receiving state. If the person ever returns to Missouri for more than 30 consecutive days, the offender will be subject to Missouri's lifetime supervision laws.
