Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
Sex Crime Defense Attorney in Miami
One of the major consequences of being convicted of a sex crime is mandatory registration as a sex offender. After being registered as a sex offender, law enforcement officers will publish your name, address, and picture as well as post all your information online. As a registered sex offender, you may find it exceedingly difficult to find employment or advance in your current career. The law also requires that you live at least 2000 feet away from the nearest school. In the city of Miami, finding a place to live under these regulations can be very difficult.
Because of the unforgiving nature of the laws dictating the lives of registered sex offenders, some individuals attempt to avoid registration. If you have been charged with failure to register or if missed the deadline to register, it is very important that you speak with a Miami federal sex crime lawyer immediately.
The Consequences of Failing to Register
After a serious sex crime conviction, individuals will only have a short period of time to register as a sex offender with the local authorities. Failure to register within the given timeframe is a felony punishable with substantial fines and more time behind bars. For individuals placed on probation, missing the registration deadline is considered a violation of the terms of probation.
If you would like to move to another state or district, the law requires that you reregister with the local authorities in that state or district before you move. The state of Florida is incredibly strict when it comes to sex offender registration. A knowledgeable sex crime defense attorney will be able to guide you through the registration process so you will not have to face additional charges.
