Tallahassee Failure to Register Attorney

Florida Sex Offender Registry Laws & Penalties

Under Florida law, all people convicted of a felony sex crime will be required to register as sex offender with the local law enforcement authorities in their town.  Convicted sex offenders are required to provide their name, address, other identifying information, and a mug shot, and are required to check in with the authorities twice a year.  They are also required to provide law enforcement with their new address within 48 hours of moving to a new location.

Typically, sex offenders are ordered to register for life, unless they’ve been acquitted of their conviction or have received a full pardon.  In some cases, a sex offender can petition the court after 10 years to remove themselves from the sex offender registry, as long as they were not arrested and did not commit any other criminal offenses since the original conviction.

Although having to register as a sex offender is embarrassing, it’s very important that you do not violate the law by failing to register with the authorities.  Failure to register is a 3rd degree felony, and will result in up to 5 years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.
