Convictions for sex offenses, in both adult and juvenile cases, trigger a requirement of registering with local law enforcement as a sex offender. Sex offender registration is governed by a complex and sometimes confusing set of statutes and rules. Depending on various factors, people with sex offense convictions are required to register for varying periods of time before they are eligible to petition to remove their information from the registry.
The requirement to register as a sex offender doesn’t just end automatically in the vast majority of cases. Deregistration is a process that requires court approval. It can be overwhelming, and frequently difficult to do on your own. Many people keep on registering long after they are eligible to petition to deregister, simply because the process of deregistration doesn’t feel accessible.
