Before considering a guilty plea to a sexual offense, be sure to understand whether this involves registration as a sex offender. In most cases, a conviction on a sexual offense will result in lifetime registration and status as a Sex Offender, 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.
Your sex crime and status and as a sex offender will be a matter of public record for the rest of your life. A new law passed in Louisiana (May, 2012), Act 385, requires sex offenders have their "Sex Offender" status publicly viewable on all social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter amongst them. Many states already prohibit sex offenders from using social networking sites. Many other states are soon to follow as they toughen laws and requirements for all sex offenders. 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 crime registrant is required to register his or her name, current address including all personal information, with local law enforcement at all times. 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 they may be criminally charged and result in further penalties.
Additionally, 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 that feature 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 law enforcement office as well as the law enforcement office in your destination location.
To make matters even worse, certain states are currently introducing legislation which will restrict where you can live. For example sex registrants may not be able to 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 and 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.
