TN - Registry - You may not have to register, or can asked to be removed?

The following was sent to us via the contact form and posted with the users permission.

By DC:
I am sure most people are unaware of this. I had to go and do my yearly registering today and got to talking to the P.O. and she informed me that now in Tennessee if you are convicted of statutory rape there is a good chance you may not have to register or you can ask to be removed of the registry at any time without the waiting period. Of course this depends on the conditions of your crime and your past criminal history. She informed me that if the judge did not order you to register you should not have to register or depending on the situation of your crime you can ask to be removed of the registry for statutory rape. So why is it that this has not made the news? Whenever something is changed that may help out a RSO no one wants to talk or report it. But let a new tougher law pass and everyone is reporting about it. So please post this and check with your P.O to see if you are able to be removed from the shame list......

All true. It's not clear in the law what happens if you move to tn after your registration has expired in another state. Says you have to have registered there for 5 yrs. The most interesting thing you didn't mention is TN is an AWA state, hope more states draft something similar. I would love to leave Ohio sometime but not going back on a registry when I get off in August. 10 yrs is long enough for consensual sex between 2 teens no way in hell doing 15 more by moving or even 5 in TN.

I might be dumb about this but, what does "AWA" stand for?
