Crimes Against Children Act

The Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children Act of 1996 was enacted by Congress to implement a national registry of child sex offenders.  The Act requires those convicted of violent crimes against children to register with their State of residence.  Every State must keep a registry of these offenders and maintain their current addresses for at least ten years.  Offenders classified as violent predators are required to verify their living address every three months for life.  Failure of a State to implement the registry can result in a reduction of federal grants to the State.  Under the law States are required to disseminate registration information to the public as is relevant to public safety. 

Also enacted by Congress in 1996 was the Sexual Tracking and Identification Act.  This act created a national database of sex offenders to be maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The purpose of this database is to assist state and local law enforcement agencies in the tracking of sex offenders across state lines.

The Crimes Against Children Act was amended by Congress in 1998 to allow States greater latitude in contacting registered child sex offenders to update their current addresses.  Offenders were also required to register in other states where they may be attending school.  The law was further amended to include sex offenders in the military and in federal employment in the registration process.
