If you are convicted of certain types of sex crimes, you may be required to register as a sex offender or sexual predator for the rest of your life. Some of the crimes that require registration include one or more of the following:
These include convictions, conspiracies to commit, attempts to commit, and solicitations to commit. 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).
