Seek advice from a lawyer, before considering a guilty or any plea to a sexual offense, as you may unknowingly agree to sex offender registration. In most cases, a conviction on a sexual offense will lead to lifetime sex offender registration, which is publicly available information in hundreds of websites across the internet and government websites. A person only has to search for your name to view your sex offender status on the internet including what you were convicted of, your picture, your current address, and other pertinent details. A person can also search a zip code or a radius of their home to view sex offenders in the area.
Lawyers know that failing to update sex offender registration can result in fines and up to 10 years in prison, no matter what state you live in because of federal laws, and a sex offender may also face additional state penalties.
Your sex crime and status as a sex offender will be a matter of public record for the rest of your life. Some states requires sex offenders have their "Sex Offender" status publicly viewable on all social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter amongst them. In other states, use of social media profiles is completely prohibited. Some states are also trying to get laws passed banning sex offenders from using the Internet altogether. Now more than ever, you need aggressively fighting lawyers for sex offenders and avoid any plea bargain that involves sex offender registration.
Sex offender registration is bad in and of itself, but under the current political climate it is getting worse. By law, a sex offender registrant is required to register his or her name, current address including all personal information, with local law enforcement at all times. You may read a 2009 fifty state survey of Sex Offender Registration Requirements ; it is outdated as it does not include current legislation and rules. There also exists federal requirements and penalties stated at sex offender registration. Most sex offenders must update their information, such as address, every 30 days. If a registrered sex offender is in violation of the update requirements s/he may be charged and convicted of more penalties.
Some states have passed laws requiring sex offenders to wear ankle monitors for the rest of their lives. Other states have propositioned laws requiring sex offenders to wear ankle bracelets. Some of the states requiring sex offenders that are high risk to be monitored through GPS ankle monitors are Florida, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, and California.

This information to some degree can lawfully be posted anywhere on the internet by anyone. The effect of this is you become registered in the national sex offender registry and become a social outcast! There now exists even publications and magazines featuring sex offenders.
The nightmare doesn't end there. If you leave your residence for any extended period of time, either on vacation or even a business trip, you may be required to notify your local police office as well as the office in your destination location.
To make matters even worse, certain states restrict where you can live. For example, sex offenders may not live within a certain distance from a school, park, bus stop, church, or other places where children are known to gather. Think about it. Most communities are designed to include schools, churches within easy transport access. This pretty much eliminates most existing communities and virtually all new communities. You will be left with very few desirable places to live!
By pleading to any sex crime, your life as a free person is over. Furthermore, the Supreme Court has generally upheld and supported all of the challenges to sex offender registration requirements!
These laws aren't going away. In fact, they are getting worse.
