Experienced Alabama Sex Crime Lawyer
While all sex crimes warrant serious penalties, a conviction for certain offenses will lead to mandatory registration as a sex offender. If you have been order to register as sex offender, it is very important that you not only register with your local sheriff's office every year, but also that you do not violate the terms of registration in any way. Committing any sort of violation in regards to registering as a sex offender can lead to additional legal penalties, charges, and may even land you back in jail or prison.
Types of Violations
There are a number of sex offender violations that could result in additional criminal charges or penalties. These violations include:
- Loitering around a school , playground, or any other place where children congregate
- Living too close to a school
- Working at a place where children are present or are likely to be present, i.e. a school, daycare, summer camp, pediatrician's office, or coaching a little league team or youth soccer team
- Living with a minor (if the victim was under 12 years old). There are some exceptions to this rule; such as if the victim was older than 12 and the minor is the defendant's child, step-child, or grandchild.
- Failing to register or re-register
- Violating probation or parole
- Registering with a false name, address, or employment information
