NYS Sex Offender Information

   The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act became effective on October 28, 2002. Under this statute, sex offenders must register with the state where an institution of higher education is located (even if they do not reside in the state) once they become enrolled or work at an institution of higher education. Changes in enrollment or employment status also must be made known to the state. Individuals covered by the act include:
  • An individual enrolled at an institution of higher education in the state on a full-time or part-time basis;
  • An individual that has any sort of full-time or part-time employment at an institution of higher education in the state, with or without compensation, for more than 14 days, or for an aggregate period exceeding 30 days in a calendar year.
   The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained.
How can you learn if a person is listed in the Sex Offender registry?
   Under the New York State Sex Offender Registry Act (SORA) rules have been established regarding the dissemination of information on Sex Offenders. Complete information can be obtained at the SORA website. SORA has four distinct procedures for community notification:
  • Local law enforcement agencies are notified whenever a sex offender moves into their jurisdiction. That agency may notify schools and other "entities with vulnerable populations" about the presence of a Level 2 or Level 3 offender if the offender poses a threat to public safety.
  • SORA established a toll free Information Line (1-800-262-3257) which citizens can call to inquire whether a person is listed in the Registry.
  • The Subdirectory may also be accessed via the Internet here at the  Division of Criminal Justice Service's website
  • The Cayuga County Sheriff's Office has information available on their website about registered sex offenders living in Cayuga County.
