Sex Offender Verification Period Underway

The Michigan State Police is reminding registered Tier 3 sex offenders that the 15-day address verification begins October 1. During this period, state law requires all Tier 3 registered offenders to report in person to their local law enforcement agency, sheriff's office or nearest MSP post to verify their address.

The Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act requires Tier 1 offenders to verify their address annually, during the first 15 days of January. Tier 2 offenders must verify their address semi-annually, during the first 15 days of January and July. Tier 3 offenders must verify their address quarterly, during the first 15 days of January, April, July and October. Failure to do so carries a penalty of up to two years of incarceration.

All registered sex offenders must also report a change of name, address, employment, campus enrollment, internet identifiers and vehicle within three business days of any change. Failure to do so is a four-year felony.

The Sex Offenders Registration Act allows for the arrest of an offender who is not in compliance with the Act's reporting requirements. Violators may be arrested during a traffic stop or any other contact with law enforcement. Additionally, law enforcement agencies conduct random address checks to verify offender compliance.
