1. An offender convicted of a crime against a child shall comply with the provisions for registration for as long as the offender resides or is present within this state or is a nonresident offender who is a student or worker within this state, unless the duty of the offender to register is terminated pursuant to the provisions of this section.
2. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 5, if an offender complies with the provisions for registration for an interval of at least 15 consecutive years during which he is not convicted of an offense that poses a threat to the safety or well-being of others, the offender may file a petition to terminate his duty to register with the district court in whose jurisdiction he resides or, if he is a nonresident offender, in whose jurisdiction he is a student or worker.

4. If the court does not terminate the duty of the offender to register after a petition is heard pursuant to subsections 2 and 3, the offender may file another petition after each succeeding interval of 5 consecutive years if the offender is not convicted of an offense that poses a threat to the safety or well-being of others.
