Serious Penalties Need Serious Strategy
Being listed on the Texas Sex Offender Registration is a penalty that can follow you for a lifetime. Your name, address, photo and details of your crime are listed on their website, and anyone can search for this information. It can affect the jobs you have, where you can live and the places you are allowed to go.
A variety of crimes can result in mandatory registration, such as:
- Unlawful restraint of a minor
- The kidnapping of anyone under 17 years old
- Trafficking people
- Sexual abuse of a minor
- Indecent exposure or indecency with a child
- Sexual assault or sexual assault with a weapon
- Prohibited sexual conduct
- Online solicitation of minors
- Possession or creation of child pornography
- Burglary with sexual intent
Additionally, there are severe penalties for failing to register yourself. Trying to avoid registering is a bad idea with serious consequences. However, an attorney can utilize legal methods to keep you off the registry.
Some circumstances can warrant a motion for early termination of your listing on the registry. You may also be able to attend hearings for petitions. Expungement or sealing your record is another option. Your attorney can continue fighting your registration status and strategize the best way to have you removed from permanent registration.
