Under Florida Law, if you have been convicted of a felony sex crime, you are required to register with local authorities as a sex offender. Failure to comply with the law could lead to your arrest and possible incarceration. At Perez LaSure Law, our helpful sex crimes attorneys can answer any questions you may have regarding the registration process, and can provide counsel about your rights and responsibilities under Florida state laws as a registered sex offender. We can explain requirements, deadlines, and any restrictions placed on you by the courts.
Sexual Predator vs. Sexual Offender
The primary difference between the registration for a sexual predator and the registration for a sexual offender is the number of times throughout the year that each person must register. For instance, sexual predators must register four times a year, while sexual offenders must register only twice a year. While each of the offenses leading to these registrations are different, the process and requirements for registration are quite similar. If you have any questions regarding the registration process, feel free to contact the knowledgeable attorneys at Perez LaSure Law.
Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
Failure to comply with sexual predator or sexual offender registration requirements is a serious offense and can spell trouble for you. You will have a limited amount of time to register once you are released from prison or placed on probation. If you fail to register, you will run the risk of violating your parole and could face an arrest. Failing to register could result in up to 5 years in prison. However, more serious consequences could result in up to 15 years in prison.
