Lawmaker tries to create Statewide Animal Abuser registry (WJAR)


A Rhode Island lawmaker is pushing for the creation of a statewide animal Abuser Registry.

Democratic Rep. Arthur Corvese has introduced a bill to create a registry to prevent people with a history of mistreating animals from obtaining other animals.

Corvese, of North Providence, says it would include anyone convicted of animal abuse after the legislation is enacted. They would have to pay $125 to register.

The attorney general's office would maintain the registry.

The information would remain in the registry for 15 years after a conviction if there is no prison sentence involved, or after release from incarceration. Anyone convicted of animal abuse more than once would be required to register for life.

Similar legislation stalled last year.

A House committee recommended the bill be studied.
