SBI is the agency responsible for maintaining the SOR for the State of Maine. The SOR houses the list of individuals required by law to register as either a 10-year or a lifetime registrant. The public can freely search for registered sex offenders online.
As soon as an individual convicted of a sex offense requiring registration is registered, electronic notices can be sent to all the appropriate agencies where an individual lives, works, or goes to school. All additions, changes , and closings made in the SOR are downloaded nightly to the public web site. This ensures that new registrations will show , expired registrations will be removed , and address changes will be displayed in a timely manner.
In 2006, Maine joined the National Sex Offender Public Registry as a participant. The public can make regional, individual state, or nationwide searches for individuals. If a Maine name is returned in the results, the link then takes the requester to the State of Maine's Sex Offender web site.
A registered sex offender is a person, male or female, who has been convicted of a crime involving a sexual act where the federal, state or local laws require them to be placed on the Sexual Offender Registry after they have served their criminal sentences or when they have been released on parole. These acts can range anywhere from misdemeanors to felonies, and the definition of a sex crime can differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States all have created laws pertaining to registration on a national registry of sex offenders.
The level of the offense depends on the crime committed, the nature of the crime, the age of the parties involved, and the propensity to recommit the offense. The federal government has enacted laws that define the terms and outline the tier of offense based on certain criteria. Each state is free to enact laws that are more strict than those enacted by the federal government. However, the states laws must be at least as stringent as those set by the federal government.
Tier I Offenses (Level 1 Sex Offender) are typically of a non-violent nature with persons of the age of majority. Tier I offenses include registration on the Sexual Offender Registry for a minimum of 15 years, with verification on a yearly basis.
Tier II Offenses (Level 2 Sex Offender) are typically also of a non-violent nature, but involve minors. Tier II offenses require being registered on the Sexual Offender Registry for no less than 25 years, with verification of the information twice a year.
Tier III Offenses (Level 2 Sex Offender) is the most serious designated sex offender. It includes those convicted of violent and non-violent acts, with minors or adults. Tier III offenses require being registered on the Sexual Offender Registry for the duration of the offender’s lifetime, with verification of the information on a quarterly basis.
