(a) When a person is convicted of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin
harassment or
new text end stalking deleted text begincrimedeleted text end under this section and the court determines that the person
used a firearm in any way during commission of the crime, the court may order that the
person is prohibited from possessing any type of firearm for any period longer than three
years or for the remainder of the person's life. A person who violates this paragraph is guilty
of a gross misdemeanor. At the time of the conviction, the court shall inform the defendant
for how long the defendant is prohibited from possessing a firearm and that it is a gross
misdemeanor to violate this paragraph. The failure of the court to provide this information
to a defendant does not affect the applicability of the firearm possession prohibition or the
gross misdemeanor penalty to that defendant.

(b) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), when a person is convicted of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin
harassment or
new text end stalking deleted text begincrimedeleted text end under this section, the court shall inform the defendant that
the defendant is prohibited from possessing a firearm for three years from the date of
conviction and that it is a gross misdemeanor offense to violate this prohibition. The failure
of the court to provide this information to a defendant does not affect the applicability of
the firearm possession prohibition or the gross misdemeanor penalty to that defendant.

(c) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (a), a person is not entitled to possess a
pistol if the person has been convicted after August 1, 1996, of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin harassment ornew text end stalking
deleted text begin crimedeleted text end under this section, or to possess a firearm if the person has been convicted on or after
August 1, 2014, of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin harassment ornew text end stalking deleted text begincrimedeleted text end under this section, unless three years
have elapsed from the date of conviction and, during that time, the person has not been
convicted of any other violation of this section. Property rights may not be abated but access
may be restricted by the courts. A person who possesses a firearm in violation of this
paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

(d) If the court determines that a person convicted of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin harassment ornew text end stalking deleted text begincrimedeleted text end
under this section owns or possesses a firearm and used it in any way during the commission
of the crime, it shall order that the firearm be summarily forfeited under section 609.5316,
subdivision 3
.

(e) Except as otherwise provided in paragraphs (d) and (g), when a person is convicted
of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin harassment ornew text end stalking deleted text begincrimedeleted text end under this section, the court shall order the defendant to
transfer any firearms that the person possesses, within three business days, to a federally
licensed firearms dealer, a law enforcement agency, or a third party who may lawfully
receive them. The transfer may be permanent or temporary. A temporary firearm transfer
only entitles the receiving party to possess the firearm. A temporary transfer does not transfer
ownership or title. A defendant may not transfer firearms to a third party who resides with
the defendant. If a defendant makes a temporary transfer, a federally licensed firearms dealer
or law enforcement agency may charge the defendant a reasonable fee to store the person's
firearms and may establish policies for disposal of abandoned firearms, provided such
policies require that the person be notified via certified mail prior to disposal of abandoned
firearms. For temporary firearms transfers under this paragraph, a law enforcement agency,
federally licensed firearms dealer, or third party shall exercise due care to preserve the
quality and function of the transferred firearms and shall return the transferred firearms to
the person upon request after the expiration of the prohibiting time period imposed under
this subdivision, provided the person is not otherwise prohibited from possessing firearms
under state or federal law. The return of temporarily transferred firearms to a defendant
shall comply with state and federal law. If a defendant permanently transfers the defendant's
firearms to a law enforcement agency, the agency is not required to compensate the defendant
and may charge the defendant a reasonable processing fee. A law enforcement agency is
not required to accept a person's firearm under this paragraph. The court shall order that the
person surrender all permits to carry and purchase firearms to the sheriff.

(f) A defendant who is ordered to transfer firearms under paragraph (e) must file proof
of transfer as provided for in this paragraph. If the transfer is made to a third party, the third
party must sign an affidavit under oath before a notary public either acknowledging that
the defendant permanently transferred the defendant's firearms to the third party or agreeing
to temporarily store the defendant's firearms until such time as the defendant is legally
permitted to possess firearms. The affidavit shall indicate the serial number, make, and
model of all firearms transferred by the defendant to the third party. The third party shall
acknowledge in the affidavit that the third party may be held criminally and civilly
responsible under section 624.7144 if the defendant gains access to a transferred firearm
while the firearm is in the custody of the third party. If the transfer is to a law enforcement
agency or federally licensed firearms dealer, the law enforcement agency or federally
licensed firearms dealer shall provide proof of transfer to the defendant. The proof of transfer
must specify whether the firearms were permanently or temporarily transferred and include
the name of the defendant, date of transfer, and the serial number, make, and model of all
transferred firearms. The defendant shall provide the court with a signed and notarized
affidavit or proof of transfer as described in this section within two business days of the
firearms transfer. The court shall seal affidavits and proofs of transfer filed pursuant to this
paragraph.

(g) When a person is convicted of deleted text beginadeleted text endnew text begin harassment ornew text end stalking deleted text begincrimedeleted text end under this section, the
court shall determine by a preponderance of the evidence if the person poses an imminent
risk of causing another person substantial bodily harm. Upon a finding of imminent risk,
the court shall order that the local law enforcement agency take immediate possession of
all firearms in the person's possession. The local law enforcement agency shall exercise due
care to preserve the quality and function of the defendant's firearms and shall return the
firearms to the person upon request after the expiration of the prohibiting time period,
provided the person is not otherwise prohibited from possessing firearms under state or
federal law. The local law enforcement agency shall, upon written notice from the person,
transfer the firearms to a federally licensed firearms dealer or a third party who may lawfully
receive them. Before a local law enforcement agency transfers a firearm under this paragraph,
the agency shall require the third party or federally licensed firearms dealer receiving the
firearm to submit an affidavit or proof of transfer that complies with the requirements for
affidavits or proofs of transfer established in paragraph (f). The agency shall file all affidavits
or proofs of transfer received with the court within two business days of the transfer. The
court shall seal all affidavits or proofs of transfer filed pursuant to this paragraph. A federally
licensed firearms dealer or third party who accepts a firearm transfer pursuant to this
paragraph shall comply with paragraphs (e) and (f) as if accepting transfer from the defendant.
If the law enforcement agency does not receive written notice from the defendant within
three business days, the agency may charge a reasonable fee to store the defendant's firearms.
A law enforcement agency may establish policies for disposal of abandoned firearms,
provided such policies require that the person be notified via certified mail prior to disposal
of abandoned firearms.

facility and the employee or person providing services in the facility are in compliance with
the laws and rules relevant to the occurrence or event.

(b) "Commissioner" means the commissioner of human services.

(c) "Facility" means:

(1) a licensed or unlicensed day care facility, certified license-exempt child care center,
residential facility, agency, hospital, sanitarium, or other facility or institution required to

.

(d) "Family assessment" means a comprehensive assessment of child safety, risk of
subsequent child maltreatment, and family strengths and needs that is applied to a child
maltreatment report that does not allege sexual abuse or substantial child endangerment.
Family assessment does not include a determination as to whether child maltreatment
occurred but does determine the need for services to address the safety of family members
and the risk of subsequent maltreatment.

(e) "Investigation" means fact gathering related to the current safety of a child and the
risk of subsequent maltreatment that determines whether child maltreatment occurred and
whether child protective services are needed. An investigation must be used when reports

mental health when reasonably able to do so;

(2) failure to protect a child from conditions or actions that seriously endanger the child's
physical or mental health when reasonably able to do so, including a growth delay, which
may be referred to as a failure to thrive, that has been diagnosed by a physician and is due
to parental neglect;

(3) failure to provide for necessary supervision or child care arrangements appropriate
for a child after considering factors as the child's age, mental ability, physical condition,
length of absence, or environment, when the child is unable to care for the child's own basic
needs or safety, or the basic needs or safety of another child in their care;

(4) failure to ensure that the child is educated as defined in sections 120A.22 and

because the child's parent, guardian, or other person responsible for the child's care in good
faith selects and depends upon spiritual means or prayer for treatment or care of disease or
remedial care of the child in lieu of medical care; except that a parent, guardian, or caretaker,
or a person mandated to report pursuant to subdivision 3, has a duty to report if a lack of
medical care may cause serious danger to the child's health. This section does not impose
upon persons, not otherwise legally responsible for providing a child with necessary food,
clothing, shelter, education, or medical care, a duty to provide that care;

(6) prenatal exposure to a controlled substance, as defined in section 253B.02, subdivision
2, used by the mother for a nonmedical purpose, as evidenced by withdrawal symptoms in
the child at birth, results of a toxicology test performed on the mother at delivery or the
child at birth, medical effects or developmental delays during the child's first year of life
that medically indicate prenatal exposure to a controlled substance, or the presence of a
fetal alcohol spectrum disorder;

(7) "medical neglect" as defined in section 260C.007, subdivision 6, clause (5);

(8) chronic and severe use of alcohol or a controlled substance by a parent or person
responsible for the care of the child that adversely affects the child's basic needs and safety;
or

(9) emotional harm from a pattern of behavior which contributes to impaired emotional
functioning of the child which may be demonstrated by a substantial and observable effect
in the child's behavior, emotional response, or cognition that is not within the normal range
for the child's age and stage of development, with due regard to the child's culture.

providing services were both in compliance with all licensing requirements relevant to the
incident.

This definition only applies to child care centers licensed under Minnesota Rules, chapter
9503. If clauses (1) to (5) apply, rather than making a determination of substantiated
maltreatment by the individual, the commissioner of human services shall determine that a
nonmaltreatment mistake was made by the individual.

(j) "Person responsible for the child's care" means (1) an individual functioning within

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 244.052, subdivision 4, is amended to read:


Subd. 4.

Law enforcement agency; disclosure of information to public.

(a) The law
enforcement agency in the area where the predatory offender resides, expects to reside, is
employed, or is regularly found, shall disclose to the public any information regarding the
offender contained in the report forwarded to the agency under subdivision 3, paragraph
(f), that is relevant and necessary to protect the public and to counteract the offender's
dangerousness, consistent with the guidelines in paragraph (b). The extent of the information
disclosed and the community to whom disclosure is made must relate to the level of danger
posed by the offender, to the offender's pattern of offending behavior, and to the need of
community members for information to enhance their individual and collective safety.

(b) The law enforcement agency shall employ the following guidelines in determining
the scope of disclosure made under this subdivision:

(1) if the offender is assigned to risk level I, the agency may maintain information
regarding the offender within the agency and may disclose it to other law enforcement
agencies. Additionally, the agency may disclose the information to any victims of or
witnesses to the offense committed by the offender. The agency shall disclose the information
to victims of the offense committed by the offender who have requested disclosure and to
adult members of the offender's immediate household;

(2) if the offender is assigned to risk level II, the agency also may disclose the information
to agencies and groups that the offender is likely to encounter for the purpose of securing
those institutions and protecting individuals in their care while they are on or near the
premises of the institution. These agencies and groups include the staff members of public
and private educational institutions, day care establishments, and establishments and
organizations that primarily serve individuals likely to be victimized by the offender. The
agency also may disclose the information to individuals the agency believes are likely to
be victimized by the offender. The agency's belief shall be based on the offender's pattern
of offending or victim preference as documented in the information provided by the
department of corrections or human services;

(3) if the offender is assigned to risk level III, the agency shall disclose the information
to the persons and entities described in clauses (1) and (2) and to other members of the
community whom the offender is likely to encounter, unless the law enforcement agency
determines that public safety would be compromised by the disclosure or that a more limited
disclosure is necessary to protect the identity of the victim.

Notwithstanding the assignment of a predatory offender to risk level II or III, a law
enforcement agency may not make the disclosures permitted or required by clause (2) or
(3), if: the offender is placed or resides in a residential facility. However, if an offender is
placed or resides in a residential facility, the offender and the head of the facility shall
designate the offender's likely residence upon release from the facility and the head of the
facility shall notify the commissioner of corrections or the commissioner of human services
of the offender's likely residence at least 14 days before the offender's scheduled release
date. The commissioner shall give this information to the law enforcement agency having
jurisdiction over the offender's likely residence. The head of the residential facility also
shall notify the commissioner of corrections or human services within 48 hours after
finalizing the offender's approved relocation plan to a permanent residence. Within five
days after receiving this notification, the appropriate commissioner shall give to the
appropriate law enforcement agency all relevant information the commissioner has
concerning the offender, including information on the risk factors in the offender's history
and the risk level to which the offender was assigned. After receiving this information, the
law enforcement agency shall make the disclosures permitted or required by clause (2) or
(3), as appropriate.

(c) As used in paragraph (b), clauses (2) and (3), "likely to encounter" means that:

(1) the organizations or community members are in a location or in close proximity to
a location where the offender lives or is employed, or which the offender visits or is likely
to visit on a regular basis, other than the location of the offender's outpatient treatment
program; and

(2) the types of interaction which ordinarily occur at that location and other circumstances
indicate that contact with the offender is reasonably certain.

(d) A law enforcement agency or official who discloses information under this subdivision
shall make a good faith effort to make the notification within 14 days of receipt of a
confirmed address from the Department of Corrections indicating that the offender will be,
or has been, released from confinement, or accepted for supervision, or has moved to a new
address and will reside at the address indicated. If a change occurs in the release plan, this
notification provision does not require an extension of the release date.

(e) A law enforcement agency or official who discloses information under this subdivision
shall not disclose the identity or any identifying characteristics of the victims of or witnesses
to the offender's offenses.

(f) A law enforcement agency shall continue to disclose information on an offender as
required by this subdivision for as long as the offender is required to register under section
243.166. This requirement on a law enforcement agency to continue to disclose information
also applies to an offender who lacks a primary address and is registering under section
243.166, subdivision 3a.

(g) A law enforcement agency that is disclosing information on an offender assigned to
risk level III to the public under this subdivision shall inform the commissioner of corrections
what information is being disclosed and forward this information to the commissioner within
two days of the agency's determination. The commissioner shall post this information on
the Internet as required in subdivision 4b.

(h) A city council may adopt a policy that addresses when information disclosed under
this subdivision must be presented in languages in addition to English. The policy may
