      Statewide sex offender verification starts Tuesday

      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.
