Criminal Law :   Sex Offender Registry   –  Removal

Where a trial court granted a petition for removal from the state’s sex offender registry for a defendant who pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct for engaging in consensual sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old boy when she was 18, the judgment is reversed and remanded because the offense subjected her to registration under Missouri law for two reasons including that she was required to register under federal law, so her obligation to register was not based on her “having been convicted of…an offense included under subsection 1 of this section,” so she was not entitled to removal under the provision.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
