I am on the Maryland Megan Law registry. I have received an employment offer with a company in Virginia. This will be a predominantly remote/work from home position. I will be required to come to Virginia one day a month. Given the stature below, it appears that this situation would not trigger a requirement to register. Is that a correct reading of the statute?
Nonresident offenders entering the Commonwealth for an extended visit, for employment, to carry on a vocation, or as a student attending school who are required to register in their state of residence or who would be required to register if a resident of the Commonwealth shall, within three days of entering the Commonwealth for an extended visit, accepting employment or enrolling in school in the Commonwealth, be required to register and reregister in person with the local law-enforcement agency.
Employment and "carry on a vocation" include employment that is full-time or part-time for a period of time exceeding 14 days or for an aggregate period of time exceeding 30 days during any calendar year, whether financially compensated, volunteered, or for the purpose of government or educational benefit.
It appears this is a question regarding Virginia law. I would suggest re-posting in that section. While the statute you quote does not seem to include your situation, given the consequences if you are incorrect, consulting a Virginia attorney would be highly advised.
