Registration restrictions (User submitted)

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

I posted this question as a comment to an article, but did not receive any feedback. I'm not looking for legal advice, just some feedback from anyone that may have some experience with this issue.

Let's say there is an individual that is convicted of a sex crime and required to register as a sex offender in the state he was convicted in. If that state has residency and movement restriction laws he obviously has to follow those while a resident of that state. But, what happens if he moves to another state? He's still required to register in the state of conviction (and the new state of residence), but is he now bound by those restrictions in his new state as well? FYI, the restrictions are not codified in the registration statute.

I've had input from 2 lawyers that have given conflicting advice...
