 Posted on October 22, 2021 in Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense Attorney Dodge CountyA sex crime conviction can have many different types of consequences that will affect a person’s life. In addition to criminal consequences such as a lengthy prison sentence, large fines, or periods of probation, a person must usually register as a sex offender. When a person is on the sex offender registry, they will need to meet a number of ongoing requirements, and they will face restrictions on where they can live and the places they can visit. Those who are facing sex crime charges can secure representation from a criminal defense attorney who can advise them of their options for defense and make sure they understand the potential consequences of a conviction.

Reporting Requirements for Sex Offenders

The sex offender registry will maintain information about a person who has been convicted of a sex crime, including identifying information such as their name, gender, date of birth, height, weight, hair color, and eye color, as well as details about the laws they violated, when they were discharged from prison or placed on probation or parole, and when their sentence will be completed.

A sex offender will be required to provide annual updates to the sex offender registry or any time when certain details have changed. These details include the addresses of any residences where the person will be living and the name and address of any employers or schools they will be attending. A person will also be required to report all email addresses, social media profiles, or other online accounts they use and any websites they create or maintain.

GPS Tracking for Certain Registered Sex Offenders

If a person is convicted of a child sex offense, including sexual assault involving sexual intercourse or sexual contact with a child under the age of 16 by use of force or the threat of violence, they will usually be required to submit to GPS tracking for the rest of their life. They will be required to wear an ankle bracelet that tracks their location. When using GPS tracking, exclusion zones will be established where a person will be prohibited from entering, such as schools, playgrounds, or childcare facilities. Inclusion zones may also be established, and a person will be required to remain in these areas.
