SANTA FE (KRQE) — Governor Martinez and Attorney General Gary King may ask the legislature to clarify registration requirements for out of state sex offenders who move to New Mexico.
Sex offenders are required to register with law enforcement for certain New Mexico crimes or the equivalents of those crimes in other states.
But there are a lot of questions about which crimes qualify.
The state Supreme Court last week overturned a Las Cruces man's conviction for not registering after moving to New Mexico.
The court said there wasn't enough evidence to show the man's sex offense in California was the same as a New Mexico sex crime requiring registration.
