Publications Legal Links Blog. For those of us who practice in criminal law and do any work with sex offenses, the questions that come up regarding registry issues can be vast and complex. I have seen many changes in the sex offender registry in South Dakota during the last ten years. We can now advise clients that registry offenses do not currently include South Dakota state misdemeanor sex offenses or most juvenile adjudications.
And there is the possibility to come off the registry, for some convictions. So what convictions can someone later petition for removal from the sex offender registry? If the conviction was felony sexual contact SDCLstatutory rape 5or attempted statutory rape 5provided the registrant was no more than 21 years of age at the time of the offense, or it is a juvenile adjudication South dakota that want sex South dakota rape, then the registrant may be eligible under Tier I for removal as soon as 10 years after initial date of registration.
SDCL B 1 - 2. If the conviction was for incest A-2 or bestiality Athe registrant may be eligible under Tier II for removal as soon as 25 years after initial date of registration. SDCL B In all cases, the offense cannot involve under 13 at the time of the offense. All other registrants are in Tier III, which is currently a lifetime registration requirement. Other qualifications include the registrant not being a recidivist sex offender not having more than one qualifying registry offense. Additionally, the registrant needs to have substantially complied in good faith with the registration and re-registration requirements.
Lastly, the registrant needs to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the court that he or she does not pose a risk or danger to the community. Some other nuances include how the time is calculated. Any period of time during which the registrant was incarcerated or during which the registrant was confined in a mental health facility does not count toward the 10 or 25 year calculation for the respective tiers, regardless of whether such incarceration or confinement was for the sex offense requiring registration or for some other offense.
Additionally, the registrant ly petitioned for removal and was denied, the registrant may not file a subsequent petition for at least two years from the date the petition was denied. So if the registrant possibly qualifies for removal under either Tier I or II, how do you petition for their removal? Now you start the information gathering.
One of the first areas that you may want to start is by getting a full statewide criminal record search. However, you will also need to attach this to the petition, so you may want to wait until closer to submission of the petition. Either way, you can order one through the Spink County Clerk of Court. You will want to make sure the information appears to be accurate. If not, you will want to get this corrected before the petition is submitted. Go through all of the factors listed in each of those statutes in the petition.
I found it easiest to start with SDCL the information required in the petitionwhich then jumps into B-8 the information required for registration of a convicted sex offender. If you want a hearing before the Court renders its decision, you must make that request in your petition. However, you cannot set a hearing until later, which I will explain. The petition can be filed either in the county where the charge originated, or where the registrant is currently residing. In your certificate of service, you need to send the entire petition and attachments to the Attorney General, as well as the State Attorney of the county in which you are filing, and, if not the same county, the State Attorney of the county of the where the charges originated from.
If the registrant is petitioning for removal for an out of state, federal, or court martial offense, you still need to send the entire petition and attachments to the office of the prosecutor in the jurisdiction where the offense occurred.
There is no set time limit for their response. If you set a hearing before you receive their response, the hearing will be cancelled.South dakota that want sex South dakota
