This bill creates the New Jersey White Collar Crime Offender Registry and requires the Department of Law and Public Safety to develop and maintain a registry website. The information to be provided on the registry includes: (1) all names and aliases by which the offender is or has been known, excluding any Internet identifiers; (2) a physical description, including the offender's date of birth, height, weight, and eye and hair color; (3) a recent photograph of the offender; (4) the "white collar" crimes listed in section 5 of the bill, of which the offender has been convicted; and (5) when available, the crimes for which the offender has been convicted; a description of the offender's targets; and any other relevant identifying information of the offender. A person convicted of the following offenses is required to be registered under the bill: insurance fraud; mortgage fraud; securities fraud; misapplication of entrusted property by fiduciary; money laundering; theft by deception; and any other financial or monetary crime, fraudulent act, or theft included in the department's rules and regulations adopted as a result of this bill. Offenders who were convicted of the specified offenses between December 31, 2005 and the date of this bill's enactment will not be placed on the registry if they have complied with all court orders, paid all restitution claims, and have not been convicted of any other offenses for which registration is required. The duration for which offenders will be placed on the registry would be 10 years for a first offense, an additional 10 years for a second offense, and for life if convicted of a third offense. The bill also provides for a process and conditions under which a person may apply to have his or her name and information removed from the registry.
