Requirements Of The Sex Offender Registration And Notification Act
In 1994, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act was passed, requiring that every state in the nation create a sex offender registry to create a nationwide network and system to track registered sex offenders. In the state of Louisiana, convictions for applicable sex crimes require registration on the Louisiana Sex Offender and Child Predator Registry. With different tiers ranging in severity ranking a registered offender’s crimes and likelihood to commit another sex crime, this registry is publicly accessible.
Registration as a sex offender can permanently affect your life long after your criminal sentence has been served, fines have been paid and your probation has been completed. Registration as a sex offender can affect your ability to find employment, housing or even apply for state licensing or educational programs. A conviction for a sex crime can haunt you for the rest of your life.
For this reason, our criminal defense attorneys aggressively and vigorously defend our clients who are facing criminal charges for sex crimes.
