LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1994, as amended, Cervantes. Sex offenders: county or local custodial facilities.
Existing law requires specified sex offenders to register with local law enforcement within five working days of coming into, or changing his or her residence within, a city, county, or city and county. If the person’s new address is in a Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation facility or state mental institution, existing law requires an official of the institution to forward the registrant’s change of address information to the Department of Justice within 90 days.
This bill would instead require the change of address to be forwarded within 15 working days of receipt or release both receipt and release of the person. The bill would also require an official with a county or local custodial facility that receives or releases a sex offender registrant to forward his or her change of address information to the Department of Justice. By imposing duties on local officials, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
