The Consequences Of Registering As A Sex Offender

There are few consequences of a sex crime conviction that are more frightening than to be forced to register as a sex offender. Unfortunately, many people are blindsided by this requirement after their criminal cases have been resolved.

With a requirement as devastating as sex offender registration, you need a skilled attorney to protect your future. Philip R. Nathe is a defense lawyer and former assistant state’s attorney for DuPage County with more than 30 years of experience. If you have been accused of a sex crime, he will work hard to help you avoid a conviction that would result in sex offender registration. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Avoiding Sex Offender Registration

As bad as prison is, sex offender registration may be a more difficult requirement. Eventually a person can get out of prison and start a new life. Sex offender registration is usually forever. The state can change the requirements at any time. Recently, Illinois changed its sexual offender registration law and many people who were subject to 10-year registration now have to register for the rest of their lives.

As a registered sex offender, anyone can look up your picture and address, along with information about the offense you were convicted of. Registered sex offenders and their families often receive threatening letters and other types of harassment. You will be barred from living in many places.
