38 the reporting requirement, the court may further order that any information

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation, in effect, creates a new category of sex
offender, that of the aggravated offender. The legislation
accomplishes this by defining the term "aggravated offense" in
Idaho Code Section 18-8303. Aggravated offenses are those sex crimes
which are of a very serious nature.
The legislation also amends Idaho Code Section 18-8310, which provides for the release of sex
offenders from registration requirements. The legislation provides
that an individual who is convicted of an aggravated offense may
not petition a court to be released from the requirement to
register as a sex offender.
In addition to the aggravated offense provisions, the legislation
also makes a technical correction to Idaho Code Section 18-8304,
by deleting language which is confusing, and which does not describe
a chargeable offense.
This legislation has no fiscal impact to the general fund.
