For a recent teaching session, I prepared an outline on terminating sex offender registration. I thought it might be helpful to a broader audience, so I posted it here.

The outline covers the requisite statutory procedures for hearings on petitions to terminate, including a summary of the findings a court must make before granting a petition. It also incorporates an updated version of the SORNA tier chart I posted a few weeks ago. (The changes are minimal. I added a note to the CRIMES column to make clear that federal tiering standards apply to attempts and conspiracies, too.)

  1. If House Bill 236 ( is signed into law, I will update this outline to indicate the proper venue for a petition by a person on the registry for a federal crime committed in North Carolina. (It would be the district of residence, not the district of conviction.)
