All sex offenders in the State of Oklahoma are assigned a classification level number 1, 2 or 3 by the Department of Corrections, Sex Offender Registry Unit in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Offenders assigned a Level 1 classification are required to register annually for fifteen consecutive years after the completion of their sentence. Level 2 offenders are required to register every six months for twenty five years after the completion of their sentence. Those offenders classified as Level 3 are required to register every ninety days for the remainder of their lifetime. These changes were made by the State of Oklahoma to comply in part with the "Adam Walsh Act", also known as "The Child Protect and Safety Act of 2006."    


57 O.S. 581-590

Signed into law by Governor Brad Henry on June 7, 2006

Lifetime offenders are required to register every 90 days. Offenders previously required to register annually are now required to register semi-annually (every six months).

Effective November 1, 2003, registered offenders were restricted from living within a 2000' radius of any public or private school or educational institution. Effective June 7, 2006, this restriction includes playgrounds, parks and licensed child care facilities.

It is now unlawful for two registered sex offenders to reside together in any individual dwelling during their term of registration. The first violation is a misdemeanor, second or subsequent violations can be punished as felonies.

Registered sex offenders are now required to list all people living in the home with them, regardless of age, sex or relationship.
