This bill establishes the White-collar Crime Offender Registration Act, which creates a crime registry that requires offenders who commit certain criminal offenses involving fraud or theft to register with the Department of Public Safety, Bureau of State Police, State Bureau of Identification for 10 years to life depending on how many registrable offenses they commit. The bill requires the bureau to post the registry on a publicly accessible website and allows an offender to be removed from the registry if the offender meets various criteria or if the registrable offense has been pardoned or expunged.
