Sex Offender Registration
Although a conviction of a sex crime will result in many serious penalties — including incarceration and serious fines. For those facing sex crime charges these penalties are not the biggest fears. For many people accused of sex crimes, the biggest fear involves the mandatory sex offender registry. If you are facing a sex crime charge, it is important to work with an experienced Haltom City sex crime defense lawyer to help you avoid the sex offender registry.
Patrick Curran, criminal law attorney. I have a thorough knowledge of the law and procedure, as well as the inside knowledge of how prosecutors handle these cases. I also understand the severity of the sex offender registry and I will fight aggressively to protect your interests.
Texas sex offender registration requires you to give all of your information to the authorities within a week of arriving in any location where you live, work or attend school. This can include personal information, fingerprints, identifying physical information and even information about the crimes for which you were convicted. This information is then made public and available to everyone in the community who cares to look it up, including:
- Housing and rental agencies
- Neighbors and neighborhood associations
Clearly, the sex offender registry requirement can be a serious hindrance to your life goals, your reputation and your future. I will defend your rights aggressively and do everything that I can for you.
Failure to register can bring even more extreme criminal penalties. I also defend clients in Texas who have been charged with failure to register or falsifying their registration information.
