Alternative Commitment and Registration Support Unit

What We Do

The Alternative Commitment and Registration Support Unit (ACRSU), a unit of the private counsel division, works to ensure that indigent clients are well-represented in sexually dangerous persons (SDP) proceedings in Superior Court, in Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB) proceedings before the SORB and Superior Court, and in the appeal of SORB and SDP cases to the appellate courts. The ACRSU certifies and trains private bar attorneys to represent indigent clients in SORB and SDP trials and appellate matters. The unit assigns, oversees and supports these attorneys to advance the interests of indigent clients reintegrating into the community and living productive lives.  The ACRSU also consists of a litigation unit with a group of staff attorneys who represent clients in SDP jury trials in Superior Court. The ACRSU provides leadership in the specialized areas of SORB and SDP litigation defense.
