In contrast to the court of appeals, we view the circuit court’s statement that it was not convinced it had the statutory authority to stay the sex registration requirement as persuasive that it made its decision based on an incorrect view of the law.

The court of appeals decision must therefore be reversed and the cause remanded to the circuit court for exercise of its discretion.
