Who is Required to Register as a Sex Offender?
Guidance from Our Olathe Sex Crime Attorney
The sex offender registry is a thorn in the side of many in Kansas who
have been convicted of a crime which requires them to register. In most
cases, registration as a sex offender is life-long and will always be
public to any potential employers or educational facilities.
When you are facing conviction that would require you to register as a
sex offender, it is important that you retain the assistance of a skilled
Olathe criminal defense attorney to represent you. Penalties for conviction
are severe and the implications of being a
registered sex offender can change your life forever. If you are facing any of the following charges,
conviction of the charge will require you to register as a sex offender
- Aggravated sexual assault
- Any sexual offense involving a minor
- Criminal sodomy
- Aggravated sexual battery
- Sodomy involving a minor
- Solicitation of a minor
- Prostitution involving a minor
This is not a comprehensive list, as penalties for sex crime are subject
to the court's discretion. However, if you are convicted of any of
the above crimes, you will be required to register as a sex offender.
Upon registry, you will need to submit personal information to public
records including your name, birth place, hometown, every offense you've
been convicted of, your social security number and many other personal
details about your life.

It is important to remember that this requirement is only for those who
are actually convicted of the sexual offense they were charged with. That
means that if you are tried for an offense but the charge is either lessened
or dismissed, you will not be required to register. This makes it all
the more impertinent that you contact a criminal defense attorney in Olathe
that can defend you effectively.
