                            CHAPTER 222-S.F.No. 3019 
                  An act relating to public safety; expanding those 
                  persons who are required to register as a predatory 
                  offender for their lifetime after a second conviction; 
                  amending Minnesota Statutes 2001 Supplement, section 
                  243.166, subdivision 6. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2001 Supplement, section 
        243.166, subdivision 6, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 6.  [REGISTRATION PERIOD.] (a) Notwithstanding the 
        provisions of section 609.165, subdivision 1, and except as 
        provided in paragraphs (b), (c), and (d), a person required to 
        register under this section shall continue to comply with this 
        section until ten years have elapsed since the person initially 
        registered in connection with the offense, or until the 
        probation, supervised release, or conditional release period 
        expires, whichever occurs later.  For a person required to 
        register under this section who is committed under section 
        253B.18 or 253B.185, the ten-year registration period does not 
        include the period of commitment. 
           (b) If a person required to register under this section 
        fails to register following a change in residence, the 
        commissioner of public safety may require the person to continue 
        to register for an additional period of five years.  This 
        five-year period is added to the end of the offender's 
        registration period.  
           (c) If a person required to register under this section is 
        subsequently incarcerated following a revocation of probation, 
        supervised release, or conditional release for that offense, or 
        a conviction for any new offense, the person shall continue to 
        register until ten years have elapsed since the person was last 
        released from incarceration or until the person's probation, 
        supervised release, or conditional release period expires, 
        whichever occurs later. 
           (d) A person shall continue to comply with this section for 
        the life of that person:  
           (1) if the person is convicted of or adjudicated delinquent 
        for any offense for which registration is required under 
        subdivision 1, or any offense from another state or any federal 
        offense similar to the offenses described in subdivision 1, and 
        the person has a prior conviction or adjudication for an offense 
        for which registration was or would have been required under 
        subdivision 1, or an offense from another state or a federal 
        offense similar to an offense described in subdivision 1; 
           (2) if the person is required to register based upon a 
        conviction or delinquency adjudication for an offense under 
        section 609.185, clause (2), or a similar statute from another 
        state or the United States; 
           (3) if the person is required to register based upon a 
        conviction for an offense under section 609.342, subdivision 1, 
        paragraph (a), (c), (d), (e), (f), or (h); 609.343, subdivision 
        1, paragraph (a), (c), (d), (e), (f), or (h); 609.344, 
        subdivision 1, paragraph (a), (c), or (g); or 609.345, 
        subdivision 1, paragraph (a), (c), or (g); or a statute from 
        another state or the United States similar to the offenses 
        described in this clause; or 
           (4) if the person is required to register under subdivision 
        1, paragraph (c), following commitment pursuant to a court 
        commitment under section 253B.185 or a similar law of another 
        state or the United States. 
           Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           Section 1 is effective the day after final enactment and 
        applies to persons who commit crimes requiring lifetime 
        registration on or after the effective date.
