Decision Date: 
May 6, 2013
District: 
4th Dist.
Division/County: 
Livingston Co.
Justice: 
KNECHT
Holding: 
Judgment vacated.
The loss of a job, whether through layoff, termination, or resignation, does not constitute a "change" in Defendant's "place of employment" to require him to report under Section 6 of Sex Offender Registration Act. The change that triggers a sex offender's duty to report under section 6 is the change in place of employment, which is a change from one location to another. A sex offender is not required to report a change in employment, which is a loss of employment. (HOLDER WHITE, concurring; STEIGMANN, dissenting.)
