Sex Offender Registry
Skip Navigation

Welcome to the Crow Tribe Sex Offender Registry (CTSOR) website. The Crow Tribe is in the process of enacting key provisions of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). As part of SORNA, all qualifying sex offenders who work, go to school, or reside within the Crow Tribe boundaries are required to register with the Crow Sex Offender Compliance Specialist (CSOCS), regardless of whether they are registered with another compliance entity. Also, ANY SEX OFFENDER VISITING THE CROW TERRITORY must contact the CSOCS by telephone immediately upon entering the Territory. The sex offender must contact the CSOCS by telephone upon a change of plans and upon exiting the Territory. SORNA requires registration in the 50 States, the five principal territories, the District of Columbia, and the Indian tribes. This is stated in SORNA ยง113(a) which provides that sex offenders must register in the jurisdictions (as so defined) in which they live, work, or attend school.
In addition, the SORNA compliance process establishes the Crow Tribe Sex Offender Registry website as a publicly accessible registry. The Sex Offender Registry is maintained by the Crow Tribe and Crow Sex Offender Compliance Specialist.
~Failure to Register.~
In the event a sex offender who is required to register due to their employment or school attendance status fails to do so or otherwise violates a registration requirement of the Crow Sex Offender Registry Code, the CSOCS shall take all appropriate follow-up measures including those outlined in Title 8D of the Crow Law and Order Code.
A sex offender who has been convicted of a covered offense involving minors shall not be permitted within five hundred (500) feet of an elementary school, junior high school, high school, playground, or childcare facility.
A registrant who intentionally offers false information on the Crow Sex Offender Registration form may be fined not more than $5,000 or imprisoned for a period of time not to exceed one (1) year, or both. Additionally, the Court may order the offender to be banished from the Crow Reservation, if the Court finds the offender is unlikely to comply with the registration process and is a danger to the community.
Notice to Convicted Sex Offenders: Under the Crow Sex Offender Registration Code and Federal Adam Walsh Act, is your responsibility to register with the Crow Sex Offender Compliance Specialist. Failure to register is both a federal and tribal crime, punishable by up to 10 years incarceration federally and/or 1 year tribally, as well as banishment or exclusion from the Crow Territory.
Each violation of a provision of this code by a sex offender who is not an Indian shall be considered a civil violation subject to a fine, with enforcement by any means not prohibited by federal law, including, but not limited to the issuance of forfeitures and civil contempt.
C. Exclusion. In addition to other penalties here, a non-member sex offender who fails to register with the CSOCS is subject to exclusion and pursuant to the recommendation of the Tribal Prosecutor, the Chairman may issue a Notice of Proposed Order of Exclusion under Title 8D. The prosecutor may also recommend an Emergency Temporary Exclusion Order under Title 8D.
D. Hindrance of sex offender registration. A person is guilty of hindering sex offender registration, a dangerous offense, if he or she:
1. Knowingly harbors or knowingly attempts to harbor, or knowingly assists another person in harboring or attempting to harbor a sex offender who is in violation of this Code;
2. Knowingly assists a sex offender in eluding a law enforcement agency that is seeking to find the sex offender to question the sex offender about, or to arrest the sex offender for, noncompliance with the requirements of this Title; or
3. Provides information to a law enforcement agency regarding a sex offender which the person knows to be false.
Unauthorized removal of Sex Offender Notification material. A person is guilty of unauthorized removal of sex offender notification material, a minor offense, if he or she removes Sex Offender Notification material from a public place without authorization. This provision shall not be construed to apply to Tribal Officials, school officials, business owners or employees who are removing or updating sex offender notification materials in the ordinary course of their duties.
