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 the Absentee-Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma’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 July 28, 2011, the Absentee-Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma submitted a substantial implementation package that included several exhibits, including background information on the tribe and its criminal justice system, courts, and police department; policies and procedures regarding sex offender registration; the tribe’s sex offender registration; and other relevant additional documents. A revised code was passed in early 2013 and forms the foundation of this report. Based on the review of these materials, this report announces that the Absentee-Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma has substantially implemented SORNA. Although the tribe has substantially implemented SORNA requirements, the report indicates one provision is identified in this report that should be addressed in order for the tribe to “fully” implement SORNA. The SMART Office offers its assistance in developing a strategy to address this deficiency.
