Client Earns Downward Departure to SORA Level 1


On September 19, V.R. received a SORA Level 1 after the court granted a downward departure based on his exceptional conduct during his sentence, which included a strong performance in sex offender treatment program, as well as his unusual degree of support in the community.  The court found that these mitigating factors reduce V.R.’s risk of future recidivism, such that the lowest registration level would be sufficient to protect the public safety.
