Registering As A Sex Offender

Regardless of the criminal penalties, a sex crime conviction will change your life forever. In most cases, California law requires that an individual convicted of a sex offense must register with local law enforcement as a sex offender, and renew that registration every year for life. Failure to do so is a crime. In addition, specified sex offenders must have their photographs and personal identifying information, including home addresses, published on the internet. This is known as Megan's Law.

Megan's Law And Bay Area Criminal Defense

The attorneys at Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP, have protected the rights of the accused since the California sex offender registry was developed, and have successfully defended against the requirements of registration and posting on the internet. The firm serves clients in the Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin Judicial District of Alameda County and throughout Northern California.

Being required to register as a sex offender will affect every aspect of your life, including where you live, getting and keeping a job, and even the purchase and sale of real estate. California real estate brokers routinely disclose the location of registered sex offenders to prospective buyers of real estate.
