If you are forced to become a member of the sex offender registry, you will have a new set of rules that are difficult to follow. However, they must be followed. If you don’t, the consequences can be even worse. After being charged with a felony sex crime, the typical guidelines are:
- Mandatory curfew between 10 pm and 6 am, or another 8-hour time period if the offender works during those hours
- Sex offender treatment program, active participation and successful completion
- No contact with the victim, including through a third person
- Living restrictions, if the victim was under 18, the offender is prohibited from living within 1,000 feet of a school, day care, park or playground
- Work and volunteer restrictions
- Restitution to the victim, as ordered by the court
These are just a few of the restrictions placed on those charged with this crime. When it matters most, you want our experienced attorneys on your side. Don’t face these charges alone.
