Failing To Register As A Sex Offender Carries Serious Consequences
In an effort to protect families and children, the state of Florida requires that all individuals convicted of a sex crime register as a sex offender. The guidelines surrounding these requirements, terms and to whom they apply are often confusing and misleading.
Many individuals who are legally required to register fail to understand that they must do so. Generally, these offenses are actually simply an oversight. Nonetheless, the law comes against you to the full extent.
