Severity of Sex Crimes
Sex crimes are amongst the most serious crimes of them all. The social stigma and heavy penalties that accompany a conviction will be severe and life altering. Under the Sex Offender Registration Act, all sex offenders are required to publically publish their personal information. Court mandated reporting requirements and length of registration periods vary depending on the various factors involved in your case. If your judge has appointed your case as a moderate or high risk offense, you will be listed on both state and federal sex offender websites. When deemed a "level one" or low risk sex offender, you will not be required to be listed on the internet.
