The offender shall serve the petition and all supporting documentation on the state's attorney in the county where the offender is currently registered, the office of the prosecutor in the jurisdiction where the offense occurred, and the Attorney General. The Attorney General's office shall respond to each petition to request removal from the sex offender registry.
