Sex Offender Registration

Call a Ventura Sex Crimes Attorney at 805-467-6542 For Defense

Sex offender registration is one of the most serious sentences. Although a crime requiring registration may not have as long of a prison term as other offenses, it has serious long-term consequences.With only a few exceptions (discussed below) sex offenders must register for life. At a minimum, sex offenders must register on an annual basis.

Other circumstances that require additional registration include:

  • moves
  • attendance at a California college
  • employment at a college

Failure to register is a serious crime, but registering often results in difficulty finding housing, employment, and social stigma.

Will I have to register as a sex offender?

A large number of offenses can result in sex offender registration.

There are two general types of offenses:

  • First, there are those requiring mandatory registration. These include Penal Code section 261- rape, several section 288 offenses, section 288a- copulation by force, and a number of others.
  • Second, there are offenses for which registration is “discretionary.” Discretionary offenses include stalking, cyber-stalking and almost any crime that the court finds is committed for sexual gratification or out of sexual compulsion. These may even include crimes like arson or kidnapping.

An experienced attorney can help you avoid the devastating consequences of registration. You can use your free consultation to determine whether or not the offense you are charged with or convicted of requires registration.

It is important to have an experienced Ventura sex crimes attorney who can help you achieve the best results possible. Call the Law Office of Christopher P. Welch today.
