If you are convicted of certain types of sex crimes, you will be required to register as a sex offender or sexual predator for the rest of your life. If you violate or fail to register, the consequence will be significant unless you can mitigate the reasons why. Some of the crimes that require registration include one or more of the following:
- Luring or enticing a child;
- Unlawful sexual activity with a minor;
- Sexual Battery (also known as rape in Florida);
- Child pornography;
- Lewd or lascivious molestation;
- False imprisonment;
- Human trafficking;
- Sexual misconduct;
- Sexual performance by a child.
You have to register when you are convicted of any of the above, conspiracies to commit any of them, attempts to commit any of them, and solicitations to commit any of them. The only way around not having to register is to receive either a pardon from the governor or post conviction relief.
You must report several times a year in person, always inform the State where you live, what cars you drive, disclose all internet e-mail usage, you will have restrictions on where you can live and where you can go, you will have a curfew and you will have to maintain a driving log.
If you fail to comply with registration requirements, you can be charged with a felony (for the failure to register).
