The bill establishes a statewide violent felony offender registry by requiring certain convicted felons to register with the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services upon release from prison. Brittany’s Law is named for a 12-year-old girl murdered in 2009 along with her mother in Ontario County. The killer was on parole at the time of the murder, serving 2 ½ years of a three-year sentence for assaulting his infantdaughter. The bill requires violent felony offenders to register with the state upondischarge, parole, or release from any facility, hospital, or institution. Similar to the state’s Sex Offender registry, violent felons would be assigned risk levels. Annual registration requirements and corresponding procedural guidelines would be established to allow local law enforcement agencies and the state to monitor the whereabouts of violent felony offenders.
