Special sexual offender disposition qualifications are expanded to include more provisions for juvenile sex offenders. 

The court may suspend the juvenile’s requirement to register as a sex offender under the following circumstances:

  • The juvenile is not charged with a violent offense

  • The juvenile is at a low risk to reoffend 

  • The interests of the juvenile and the community weigh in favor of suspending the requirement to register as a sex offender.

If this suspension is revoked, the court shall order the juveinile to register as a sex offender. 

  • If the juvenile has registered as a sex offender, the court may terminate the registration if the court finds that thee juvenile has met all the statutory requirements and completed all the terms of supervision as outlined.
