Sex Offender Registration in California

Orange County Sex Offender Registration Lawyer Kenneth L Schreiber

The Law Offices of Kenneth L. Schreiber have been defending clients against charges of sex crimes for more than 35 years. In recent years, California has become more and more aggressive in prosecuting alleged sex crimes and has created several laws and requirements that can haunt a person convicted of a sex crime for the rest of their life. Some of these requirements and harsh laws may have been well-intentioned but, often, they lead to unjustified persecution that helps no one.

You may be over the age of eighteen and had consensual sex with someone under eighteen; in California you may be charged with statutory rape. If convicted, you may be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. You may have been arrested for possessing child pornography in Orange County. If you are convicted, even after you serve possible jail time and pay your debt, you may be required to register as a sex offender in California. Perhaps someone can make the argument that California’s sex registry is justified. At the Law Offices of Kenneth L. Schreiber, we believe that the registry is unnecessary, poorly implemented and is a very crude tool for a very specific area of the law.

By being a registered sex offender, you will have major restrictions placed on your liberty even after you have been punished by the judicial system. You may have served time in jail, paid massive fines, attended mandatory counseling and still you are forced to register. As a member of the registry, you must:

  • Update your status as a sex offender with California law enforcement every year of your life
  • Allow your status as a sex offender to be available to the public
  • Restrict where you can work
  • Make certain career choices unavailable
  • Put professional licenses at risk
  • Restrict your opportunities for buying or renting a home

Your ability to interact with children—even your own—may be severely limited or even forbidden. How much should sex offenders be punished? California law’s answer is: infinitely. Orange County Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer Kenneth L. Schreiber disagrees. He may be able to help you avoid the requirement when you call 949-852-0411.

Alternatives to registering as a sex offender in California

If the law requires you to register as a sex offender, if you fail to do so, you will be arrested. However, there are legal alternatives. Criminal Defense Attorney Kenneth L. Schreiber may be able to get your conviction reversed, your charges reduced, your arrest and conviction expunged, or seek a full pardon for you. If you contact him soon enough, he may be able to help you avoid a trial altogether.
