After lawmakers in Albany killed a new bill that would have extended Level 1 sex offender registration by a decade, local leaders are taking action. The legislation, AA, was first introduced by Murray but killed in the corrections committee in April. Murray sponsored the bill in response to a New York State Court of Appeals ruling that overturned all local laws relating to where a sex offender can live.
Since the start ofsome Level 1 sex offenders began to come off of the registry, when a state appeals court decision removed all local restrictions on where convicted sex offenders may reside. As is stands today, the only restrictions in place prohibit high-level offenders who are on parole or probation from living within 1, feet of a school. While campaigning for re-election last fall, Murray pledged to take more action in Albany and launched an online petition called FixTheLawNow.

A level 2 sex offender who was arrested last year for not registering his new address was caught violating his registration requirements again again in the same town last week, Southampton Town police said. Carl Graves, 54, was arrested by a U. Marshal near a mobile home park in Amityville Friday, according to a police report. Graves was arraigned in town court and is being held without bail at Suffolk County jail because of prior felony convictions, court officials said.
If you commit a sex crime, there is a good chance that you will be sent to prison or be required to serve a term of probation. However, regardless of whether you spend a few months or a few years in prison, or if you are on probation for 6 or 10 years, an additional consequence of being convicted of a sex crime is that you will be required to register as a sex offender under the New York Sex Offender Registration Act SORA. SORA requires those convicted of almost any sex crimes as well as a few other types of crimes to register as a sex offender with the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services DCJS for a minimum of 20 years, and in some cases for life.
