I now find that I have to, on occasion explain to others that I have only one conviction in NY and not a conviction in Florida because of their registry laws. I did the right thing a few years ago when visiting my parents when my mother was recovering from a stroke. I’m a lv 1 registered SO (low risk) in NY and was not searchable online. Once I was in Florida’s system that all changed. I have 10 yrs of 20 on NY registry. I’m hoping that within the next 10 yrs Florida will open their eyes and remove name for people who’s crime was not committed in there state but had to register while visiting.
