Tier Two
  • Moderate risk of recidivism
  • Convicted of child endangering, compelling prostitution, and gross sexual imposition with victims younger than 13
Tier Three
  • High risk of recidivism
  • Guilty of rape, sexual battery, murder with sexual connotations, kidnapping for sex trafficking, and violent pregnancy termination of others

State of Alaska Sex Offender Registry From A to Z

Alaska has strict sex offender registration laws that strive to prevent convicts from reoffending.

All released sex offenders must provide their personal info to the sex offender registry the next day following their release from prison.

Offenders are required to report to local law enforcement regularly after the initial registration. Sex offenders who committed their crimes after January 1, 1999, have to report quarterly, based on a ruling from the Alaska Supreme Court. Prior offenders need to register annually and stay on the registry for life if they have two or more convictions. They must provide valid, current home address information. If they move, change jobs, or similar, they must update their registration the following day.

Registered Sex Offenders Alaska—Restrictions

Registered sex offenders face many residential, employment, and other restrictions—they:

  • Are prohibited from spending time near parks, bars, schools, and many other public places
  • Can’t live near public places and facilities frequented by children
  • Undergo serious background checks when applying for jobs and typically can’t get a job that requires them to be near children
  • Must follow the registration rules of their destination state when traveling

Many sex offenders avoid placing themselves on the registry to avoid these strict rules.
