On this Date in Minnesota History: August 1

August 1, 2000 – Katie’s Law, named after Moose Lake murder-victim Katie Poirier, went into effect on this date. The law “updated and broadened Minnesota’s sex offender registration requirements. Included in the law are provisions that require significantly more information about each offender to be included in the registry.

"These informational requirements cover such matters as the locations of all properties leased or owned by the offender, the addresses of all places of employment, and the make, model, and tag number of all vehicles owned or regularly driven by the offender. The law also broadened the scope of who must register, as well as the technical requirements for keeping that registration up to date, and increased the penalties for noncompliance.”
