State of Idaho Sex Offender Registration Requirements

This information pertains to felony adult sex offenders only. Sex offender registration in Idaho began on July 1, 1993, which established a statutory duty for persons convicted of certain felony sex crimes to register with their local sheriff. In 1998, the Legislature repealed the original act and enacted the "Sexual Offenders Registration Notification and Community Right-to-Know Act" to strengthen program administration and to expand public access to central registry information. The new registration law became effective July 1, 1998, under code Title 18, Chapter 83, Idaho Code (sections 18-8301 through 18-8329).

All clients under supervision with IDOC must strictly adhere to registration laws and are subject to prosecution for a felony, Failure to Register, for any non-compliance.
