Assisting Clients With The Options Available Regarding Sex Offender Registration

In California, individuals who are convicted of certain sex crimes are required to register as a sex offender. This information — including name, address, physical description, a photograph, and more — is available to the public.

Registered sex offenders are required to update their information at least once a year. Additionally, any time a registered sex offender moves, he or she must notify authorities within five days.

If your name is on the registry, your life will be impacted in many ways — from your reputation to your professional and personal life. I am Errol H. Stambler, a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who can help you explore options concerning your sex offender registration case. Please feel free to contact my law office 24 hours a day to learn about your specific options in regard to Megan’s Law.

Getting Your Name Removed From The California Sex Offender Registry

In general, it is difficult for an individual to be removed from the California sex offender registry. However, individuals who have been convicted of certain sex offenses may be able to have their personal information removed. These offenses include:

  • Misdemeanor child molestation
  • Sexual battery by restraint
  • Certain sex offenses that did not involve penetration or oral stimulation (under certain circumstances and depending on the relationship between the offender and the victim)

Additionally, individuals who have completed probation may be able to have their names and information removed from the sex offender registry. It is important to note that this is not an automatic process. If you wish to have your name removed from the registry (and you meet all requirements), you should discuss your legal options with a lawyer who is knowledgeable in this area of law.
