                            To reauthorize certain programs established by the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, and for other purposes.

Introduced in House
Adam Walsh Reauthorization Act of 2017

This bill amends the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act to:

 * reauthorize through FY2022 the Sex Offender Management Assistance program;
 * reauthorize through FY2022 the activities of the U.S. Marshals Service to
   locate and apprehend sex offenders who violate sex offender registration
   requirements;
 * reduce from 25 years to 15 years the required registration period for certain
   juvenile delinquent sex offenders who maintain a clean record;
 * allow a state, Indian tribe, or territory to exempt from disclosure on a
   public website information about juvenile delinquent sex offenders;
 * specify how to calculate the allocation of Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance
   Grant (JAG) program funds for local governments after a state's JAG funds are
   reduced for failure to comply with sex offender registration and notification
   standards; and
 * establish an alternative method for complying with the in-person verification
   requirement.

It amends the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 to require the
Department of Justice to include additional data in its annual report on the
enforcement of sex offender registration requirements.

The bill amends the federal criminal code to:

 * modify the duties of probation and pretrial services officers to include,
   when directed by a court, supervision of a sex offender conditionally
   released from civil commitment subject to court-ordered compliance with a
   prescribed regimen of medical, psychiatric, or psychological treatment; and
 * extend the statute of limitations for a minor victim of a federal sex offense
   to file a civil action to 10 years (currently 3 years) from the date such
   individual reaches age 18.
