Sexual Registration

Most sex crime convictions in California mandate registration as a sex offender — in addition to other serious penalties. If you have been charged with a sex crime, now is the time to fight your charges and seek to avoid the consequences of a criminal conviction.

What Does Sexual Registration Require?

A registered sex offender is required to do the following:

  • Register annually with law enforcement
  • Register every time he or she moves
  • Register if he or she goes on vacation (or is away from home) more than five consecutive days
  • Wear a GPS monitoring device

Additionally, there are restrictions as to where a registered sex offender can live. Living within a certain distance of a school or playground is prohibited.

Registered sex offender information is available for anyone to view online. This includes the offender's name, address, and details of the crime.
