Resource: Sex Offender Management and Treatment Act: The First Year

By: New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services

April 1, 2008

This report is an overview of the first year following the adoption of the Sex Offender Management and Treatment Act (SOMTA) in New York. This act established a new system of Civil Management to civilly confine and/or closely supervise sex offenders who are about to be released from prison, improved the treatment requirements for incarcerated sex offenders, and created the new Office of Sex Offender Management within the Division of Criminal Justice Services. This act resolved the State of N.Y. ex rel. Harkavy v. Consilvio, 7 N.Y.3d 607 (2006) and State of N.Y. ex re. Harkavy v. Consilvio 8 N.Y.3d 645 (2007) ("Harkavy I" and "Harkavy II") cases.
