Under current law, there is a single sex offender management
board that sets standards for sex offender treatment and approves sex
offender treatment providers (treatment providers), among other things.
The bill creates 2 boards, one for adult sex offenders and one for juvenile
sex offenders.
Under current law, a sex offender is given the choice of 2
treatment providers. The bill allows a sex offender access to the list of all
treatment providers to choose from, with some restrictions.

The bill gives prosecutors discretion to permit a sex offender
evaluation to be dispensed with if it is only triggered by sexual offense
The bill directs the department of corrections (department) to
identify all inmates who are required to undergo sex-offense treatment,
are eligible to receive sex-offense treatment, and have not been provided
with the opportunity to undergo sex-offense treatment while incarcerated.
The department shall provide this data to the adult sex offender
management board prior to August 31, 2022. The division of parole in the
department and the adult sex offender management board shall meet and
develop solutions to address the needs of treatment for offenders
incarcerated in the department. The adult sex offender management board
shall present findings to the division of criminal justice in the department
of public safety prior to January 1, 2023.
The bill requires the boards to create a joint application review
subcommittee to serve each board for the application and review process
of treatment providers, evaluators, and polygraph examiners. The bill
requires the boards to maintain a record of any denial or removal from the
list of approved treatment providers or other sanctions due to a provider's
criminal history.
The bill requires the adult sex offender management board to
conduct a reoffense research project to collect and analyze data related to
rearrest and reconviction rates for sex offenders.
