Sex offender registration on

LANSING, MI (AP)--   The quarterly verification period for Michigan residents convicted of sex offenses gets underway Tuesday across the state. 

It lasts for 15 days. 

State police say so-called "Tier 3" offenders are required to report their current address to a local law enforcement agency, sheriff's office, or State Police post.

The Michigan Sex Offender Registration Act requires Tier 1 offenders to verify their address annually, during the first 15 days of January.  

Tier 2 offenders must verify their address semi-annually, during the first 15 days of January and July. 

Tier 3 offenders must verify their address quarterly, during the first 15 days of January, April, July and October.  Failure to do so carries a penalty of up to two years behind bars.
