Abstract

Oregon has almost 20,000 sex offenders, but it largely has been a one-size-fits-all system. About 16,000 have undergone an assessment by the Department of Corrections; 4,000 have not.

The bill would set up three tiers. The first tier would consist of those considered at the least risk of offending, and offenders could get off the list in five years. The second tier would consist of those at moderate risk, but who can petition to be reclassified in 10 years.

The third tier would consist of those most likely to reoffend. For those convicted of specific crimes — first-degree rape, sodomy, unlawful sexual penetration, kidnapping and burglary, the latter committed with other qualifying crimes — those offenders would have some reporting obligations during their lifetimes.
