Where appellants including the highway patrol challenged a judgment granting petitioner’s request to have his name removed from the state’s sex offender registry, the meaning of the upgrade provision for repeat tier I offenders is an issue of first impression, and because the petitioner was not required to register at all at the time of his second adjudication for what is now a tier I offense, he could not be upgraded to a tier II offender, so the trial court did not err in granting his petition.
Judgment is affirmed.
