Specific Offense Issues

When it comes to sexual offenses, every state in this country, and the federal government, have designated special regulations imposed on the defendant after finishing their sentence in prison, on probation or on parole. Sex offenders are usually required to register with local authorities and provide other personal information to allow various law enforcement agencies to scrutinize their everyday lives. The list of offenses deemed “sex offenses” has gotten larger over the fifteen to twenty years these laws have been in place. If you have been convicted of a sexual offense, there are restrictions which can be imposed on you, such as: where you can live, where you work, how you use computers, who you can interact with—including your own family and children.

In an effort to keep children out of harm’s way, many jurisdictions have created obstacles for offenders who have completed their sentences and are now fully law-abiding citizens and are no longer a threat to anyone. Some states have allowed offenders the opportunity to be removed from sexual offender registries. Other states allow offenders to minimize the requirements imposed on them.
