Sex offender registration bill passes House

Posted: Updated:

The Arizona House of Representatives unanimously approved a bill that requires sex offenders to register every residence in which they might live.

The bill, HB 209, will force convicted sex offenders to register as a transient every 90 days with the sheriff's office in the jurisdiction in which they live, and to provide physical descriptions and locations of any temporary residence.

Sponsored by Rep. Bob Robson, R-Dist. 20, the bill is intended to prevent sex offenders from skirting former registration laws.

The bill now goes to Gov. Jan Brewer for her signature.
