I left IL the day I told them I was leaving and went to washington and registered but decided to come back to IL. The cop said I was out of compliance because I was not registered in washington in 3 days, but I do have proof I registered. When I went back to IL I was arrested for failure to register. First off, I have proof through debit card transactions that I left the state the day I told them I was leaving, and I have debit card transactions all the way through the day I came back to IL to register. I was never in IL until I came back to register and I can prove it. Second off, the 3 day rule is only when you move WITHIN the state of IL right? Do I have a defense? and can someone that knows sex offedner laws in IL help me with my case?

A sex offender visiting the State of Illinois for more than 3 days in a calendar year will be required to register with the local law enforcement jurisdiction where the sex offender is staying. This means cumulative days; it does not necessarily have to be 3 consecutive days.
An offender must register any and all places he or she resides for a period of 3 or more days in a calendar year. If an offender changes his or her address, he or she must inform the local law enforcement agency in which they reside of the move, and the law enforcement agency in which they are moving to within 3 days of that move.
