The Illinois State Police is the administrating agency for the sex offender registration program, but local and county law enforcement agencies complete the sex offender registration in Illinois.

Timeframe for Registration:

A sex offender must report in person to the local law enforcement jurisdiction they are currently registered with to report a change of address within 3 days of their move. The sex offender must then also report to their new jurisdiction within 3 days of the move to register the new address.

A sex offender visiting in the State of Illinois for more than 3 days will be required to register with the local law enforcement jurisdiction they are visiting.

Penalties for Non-Compliance:

Any person required to register who violates any of the provisions of the Sex Offender Registration Act is guilty of a Class 3 felony.  A second or subsequent violation of the Registration Act, is a Class 2 felony.  Mandatory minimum fine of $500 is incurred for failure to comply with the Act:

In addition to any other penalty required by law, the offender shall be required to serve a minimum period of seven days confinement in a local county jail.  A sentence of supervision shall not be imposed.

In addition to the mandatory confinement, a sex offender shall pay a mandatory minimum fine of $500.

Failure to comply with the Sex Offender Registration Act will result in a 10-year extension of the registration period.  The 10-year extension starts when the sex offender registers after the violation.

If a sex offender or sexual predator is convicted for a violation of the Act after July 1, 2005, he or she will be required to register every 90 days for the remainder of their registration period.

Confidentiality Provision:

No prohibitions against the secondary dissemination of information.
