The court may suspend the juvenile’s requirement to register as a sex offender if the juvenile is not charged with a violent offense, is at low risk to reoffend, and the interest of the juvenile and the community weigh in favor of suspending the requirements to register.  If the SSODA is revoked the juvenile is required to register as a sex offender.

Offenders who are eligible for this special sexual offender disposition alternative are defined.

Allows qualified professionals who are not certified sex offender treatment providers to provide a SSODA evaluation and treatment pursuant to a SSODA if the treatment is evidence-based.
