ORANGE COUNTY SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION ATTORNEY

What You Need to Know After a Sex Crime Conviction in Orange County, CA

Sex crimes, such as rape and child molestation, often have lifelong consequences in California. When you are convicted of a sex crime, you are highly likely to be placed on the state’s public sex offender registry. Many offenders will be placed on the list for life, even after recent legislative changes made it possible for some people to be removed from the list after years of “good behavior.”

It's no question that you need committed, trusted, and proven criminal defense representation to ensure you receive a fair trial. Your very livelihood is stake when accused of a serious sex crime, after all. The Law Office of Jacqueline Goodman is serious about providing reliable, steadfast defense to the accused of Orange County because everyone deserves a fair chance in court. If you are at risk of being placed on the sex offender registry due to pending criminal charges, contact her office immediately at (714) 266-3945 to discuss your options.

HOW CAN YOU KEEP YOURSELF OFF THE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY?

Take swift action to consult with Orange County Sex Offender Registry Defense Lawyer Jacqueline Goodman about your case. She can help you avoid the registry by challenging your charges. Or if you have already been convicted, she can explore your options for being removed from the registry early.

While previous laws required you to be on the registry for life, new legislation also allows you to receive limited time on the registration. Depending on the severity of your sex crime, you may be listed in the registry for 10 or 20 years. While this is a very long time, it is better than being a sex offender registrant for life.

MEGAN’S LAW OF CALIFORNIA

Megan's Law was created with the intent of educating the public about local sex crimes convicts.

Sex crimes that often get included under Megan's Law are:

  • Rape
  • Sexual battery
  • Sexual penetration with a foreign object
  • Sex crimes involving children

Under the rules of Megan’s Law, local law enforcement agencies will notify neighborhoods, schools, and community leaders whenever a registered sex offender moves into the area.

After you are released from prison, you will need to register with the sex offender registry in your area if your conviction falls under the umbrella of Megan’s Law. Your community will most likely be notified of your presence, and you will appear on a California website with information about why you are on the registry, along with your photo. To say that your reputation and livelihood will be destroyed is an understatement.
