Title

Animal Cruelty and Abuse - As introduced, enacts the "Tennessee Animal Abuser Registration Act." - Amends TCA Title 39; Title 40 and Title 44.


Summary As Introduced

This bill enacts the Tennessee Animal Abuser Registration Act, which requires the TBI to post to its web site a list of persons convicted of the following criminal offenses against animals:

(1) Aggravated animal cruelty;

(2) Felony animal fighting;

(3) Bestiality and related offenses; and

(4) Cruelty to animals.

The list, which is to be publicly accessible beginning January 1, 2016, will include the animal abuser's full legal name, photograph, and any other identifying data the TBI determines is necessary to identify the abuser and to exclude innocent persons. The list will not include the abuser's social security number, driver license number, or any other state or federal identification number.

Under this bill, within 21 calendar days of the judgment, court clerks must forward to the TBI a copy of the judgment and date of birth of any person convicted of a qualifying animal abuse offense.

Upon a first conviction of an animal abuse offense, a person's name and identifying information will remain on the list for two years following the conviction, and the TBI will remove the name at the end of the two-year period, unless that person commits another animal abuse offense during that time. If a person is convicted of an animal abuse offense a second or subsequent time, that person's name will remain on the list for five years, and the TBI will remove it at the end of that time, unless the person commits another animal abuse offense during the five-year period.

The TBI may promulgate rules to effectuate the purposes of this bill.

ON APRIL 13, 2015, THE SENATE ADOPTED AMENDMENTS #1 AND #2 AND PASSED SENATE BILL 1204, AS AMENDED.

AMENDMENT #1 requires the TBI to remove a person's name and identifying information from the registry list if the sole offense for which the person is on the list is expunged. This amendment also extends, from 21 calendar days to 60 calendar days, the time within which the court clerk must forward the copy of the judgment to the TBI.

AMENDMENT #2 removes a conviction for "cruelty to animals" from the list of offenses that would subject a person to the registration requirements of the bill.
