Few questions about sex offenders in Mississippi
 
My boyfriends charge in state of MS is considered a sex offense. I have told him all about PTO and how I have learned so much. I have learned on here that sex offenses are now in 3 tiers. Tier 1 thru 3. I asked him if his paperwork has him leveled. He said no. He asked me how they consider the levels is 1 being the highest the worse or is 3 the most extreme? I have looked on here for the info and was wondering if someone could explain it to me. I could of swore I read that knowing which tier would determine how long one would have to register for the registry. Also I have seen people mention SOTP...I'm guessing its sex offender therapy program? Do all sex offense charges require to participate at some point? He has to do 5 more years as mandated. There is no parole in MS for sex offenders and he has years of probation to do. So, I'm wondering if maybe SOTP would be a condition of his probation. All these requirements and conditions I have read of is confusing to me. I know its all different by ones case and just because i read something doesn't mean will be something that will pertain to him. However, any info I can learn can help me become knowledgeable to help him.

I read alot in this forum and sometimes I don't post as much as I would like out of fear of being judged. In society people see the term sex offense and automatically judge off bat. I hate that.

Again, any info would help. This is part of our reality. Thank you.

Amy, no one is going to judge you or your LO in this LASO forum. As the saying goes: it's a safe place to land. So feel free to ask away.

As far as the tiers go, I'm pretty sure the AWA (Adam Walsh Act) standardized it in all states so that Tier-1 is the lowest risk, Tier-2 is moderate, and Tier-3 is the highest risk category. These categories affect not just how harsh conditions of post-release supervision can be, but also how long one must remain on the registry before they can petition for removal (or automatically be taken off in some states). Here in Idaho, I believe it's 10 years for Tier-1, 25 years for Tier-2, and Lifetime Registry for Tier-3 and SVPs (Sexually Violent Predator designations, for those states that don't civilly commit). But I'm not sure if all states follow that rubric.

Generally, Tier 3 is the worst.

All the rest of your questions are handled under His state's laws. SOTP can be mandated in prison, or it can be required during probation, depending on the state.

I think I'll move your question to Mississippi, because they'll know better in that forum!

Nobody posts in the MS forum. Please don't move it there.

The links may not work = You may have to click that you agree to their "conditions for use," and enter the code you see into a text box....then go to Resources.
