Section 1283.50  Requirements

 

a)         Registration Period

A violent offender against youth required to register under the Act shall be required to register for a period of 10 years after the conviction or adjudication if not confined to a penal institution, hospital, or any other institution or facility, or, if confined, for a period of 10 years after parole, discharge or release from any such facility.  Liability for registration terminates at the expiration of 10 years from the date of conviction or adjudication if not confined to a penal institution, hospital, or any other institution or facility, or, if confined, at the expiration of 10 years from the date of parole, discharge or release from any such facility, providing the person does not, during that period, again become liable to register under the Act.  Reconfinement (due to violation of parole or other circumstances) that relates to the original conviction or adjudication shall extend the period of registration to 10 years after final parole, discharge, or release.  Failure to comply with any provision of the Act shall extend the period of registration by 10 years beyond the period otherwise required.  A person at least 17 years of age at the time of the commission of the offense who is convicted of first degree murder under Section 9-1 of the Criminal Code of 1961 [720 ILCS 5/9-1], against a person under 18 years of age, shall register in person annually within one year after his or her last registration for the period of his or her natural life. Transfer from the Sex Offender Registry to the Violent Offender Against Youth Registry will not extend the registration period for offenders who were registered under the Sex Offender Registration Act.

 

b)                  Confidentiality

 

1)         The secondary dissemination of violent offender against youth information is not prohibited.  Secondary dissemination is defined as dispersing the information beyond law enforcement officials.

 

2)         Information regarding an adjudicated juvenile delinquent violent offender against youth shall not be available to the public, except that information may be provided to a person when the Department or any law enforcement agency determines that the person's safety may be compromised for some reason related to the juvenile violent offender against youth.

 

c)                  Child Murderer and Violent Offender Against Youth Registration Form

Out-of-state students must register with the agency of jurisdiction where they attend school in Illinois.

Any individual or entity shall, upon request to the local agency of jurisdiction, be provided an opportunity by that jurisdiction to inspect a listing of all names, addresses, dates of birth, and offenses or adjudications of violent offenders against youth required to register or registered with that jurisdiction.  The jurisdiction has the discretion to provide any additional information contained in the registry, including photographs but excluding information that would help identify the victim, for the purposes of public inspection.  The jurisdiction has the discretion to provide the requester with the list of all violent offenders against youth required to register within the county, or in any other Illinois county.  The jurisdiction may either allow the requester to inspect the list and take notes, as appropriate, or provide a copy of the list to the requester.  Secondary dissemination of violent offender against youth information is not prohibited.  However, information on an adjudicated juvenile delinquent violent offender against youth shall only be disseminated when related to personal safety.

 

i)          Violent Offender Against Youth Information

The name, address, date of birth and offense of the violent offender against youth will be provided to all persons or entities receiving information from the registry pursuant to this Part.  General violent offender against youth information can be obtained on the Illinois State Police Website at www.isp.state.il.us.  Law enforcement agencies have the discretion to provide any additional information contained in the registry, including photographs, that will help identify the violent offender against youth.  Information that would help identify the victim may not be disclosed.

 

j)                    Juvenile Registration
