Sex Offender Registration in Orlando
About Sex Offender Registration
Lawmakers created sex crime registries in order to warn the public of potential risk following sex offenders being released back into the community from jail or prison. These registries have many perceived benefits, but in actual practice, they also present a number of problems, including:
- Many people are forced to register as sex offenders for life after being convicted of sex crimes that were actually consensual acts between two loving partners. This happens in cases when one of the consenting individuals is underage.
- People on sex crime registries face restrictions on where they can travel or live
- Inclusion in a sex crime registry can substantially harm one's chances of obtaining gainful employment
- Sex crime registries do differentiate between varying degrees of sex crimes. However, the mere inclusion on such a registry can cause a person significant hardship, even if that person was only convicted for a minor offense.
If you are being charged with a sex crime that includes mandatory sex offender registration as a penalty, contact an Orlando sex crime lawyer who will provide you with legal defense in an effort to help you avoid having to register.
