This set the standard for how law enforcement classifies sexual offenses.
Under the federal Adam Walsh Act, sexual offenses are classified based on the crime committed , the nature of the crime, the age of the people involved, and whether or not the convicted sex offender is likely to commit the same type of offense again. Under this new federal law, states were encouraged to do likewise, altering their sex offender registries to reflect their categories. Convicted sex offenders in Michigan are required to register their addresses with the Michigan State Police a certain number of times , during specific times of the year.
They are also required to stay on the sex offender registry for different periods of time, based on their assigned tiers. Tier I : Must verify their residence and other information in-person once a year for 15 years.
Tier II : Must verify their residence and other information in-person twice a year for 25 years. Tier III : Must verify their residence and other information in-person four times a year for the rest of their lives.
