Annotation: This report of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) presents the findings and recommendations of its review of Wyoming’s implementation of the provisions of the Federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).
Abstract: The SMART Office is responsible for monitoring and assisting States’ and U.S. territories’ implementation of SORNA. On April 13, 2009, the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office, Division of Criminal Investigation, Sex Offender Registry, submitted to the SMART Office a SORNA substantial implementation package. This package included State legislation pertinent to the implementation of SORNA requirements, the SORNA Checklist for assessing implementation of its provisions, a description of sex offender registration procedures, and other relevant documents. SMART’s review of these materials followed the outline of the SMART Office’s Substantial Implementation Checklist - Revised, which contains 15 sections that address the SORNA requirements. Under each section, the SMART Office review indicates whether Wyoming meets the SORNA requirements of that section or deviates from them in some way. Where there is deviation, the review indicates whether it is a “substantial” deviation. The review of Wyoming’s materials package determined that Wyoming has “substantially” implemented SORNA, and in so doing has improved its sex offender registration and notification system. Appended relevant Wyoming statutes
