Sex Offender Registration Violation

Sex Offender Registration Violation - Sexual Violations Lawyer

Federal law requires every state to maintain a sex offender registry. This requirement was made into law in 1994 when an amendment to the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, commonly known as the federal version of Megan’s Law, was passed. Each state has the autonomy to determine which conviction requires sex offenders to register as such and how long registered offenders must remain in the database. They may also set specific penalties for an individual who violates their registration requirements.

In Michigan, convicted sex offenders of certain sex crimes are required to register with the Michigan Sex Offender Registry under the Sex Offenders Registration Act. Failure of registering when required to do so is a felony.

I didn’t know much about the entire legal process so Paul was a great Lawyer for me. He took the time to explain everything without making me feel dumb. He fought for me and got me a great outcome for my case. He is a great guy that eased my stress about my case and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Paul!

The penalties a person faces for failing to register as a sex offender become steeper as he or she accrues convictions of this type.

Additionally, unintentional failure to register as a sex offender is a criminal offense punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $2,000.

Failure to register as a sex offender is not the only sex offender registration violation an individual can be charged with committing. Other violations include:

If you are on parole, a violation of your sex offender requirement is also considered a violation of your parole. This is why it is very important for sex offenders to ensure that they seek the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Having a skilled lawyer may be able to help a sex offender make sure that their registration is correct and that they would not be accused of violating it. A lawyer can also help them ensure that their requirements are followed thoroughly.

I’ve used Paul for a BAIID appeal hearing multiple times. He has been very professional is very knowledgeable in the laws applicable. I’ve used other attorneys in the past but have never had the satisfaction as I’ve had with Paul. Most attorneys will over promise but be hard to reach after the contract is signed. Despite the time of day or the day of the week, he has always immediately responded to me. In addition, his assistant Karen has always been incredibly helpful in making calls to the SOS on my behalf. Although he may not have all the answers immediately, his immediate reply has reassured me numerous times. Just knowing that he’s reachable allayed much of my anxiety. In the end, he went above and beyond to make sure everything worked out. I would gladly recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.
