Los Angeles Sex Offender Registration Attorney



Sex Crime Lawyer in Los Angeles

According to California Penal Code section 290, if someone is convicted of a sex crime, then by law, that individual is required to register as a sex offender with Local Law Enforcement within five business days of coming to a particular area for the purpose of residing.

Sex crimes include but are not limited to: sex with a minor, statutory rape, child molestation, lewd conduct, oral copulation, and other similar offenses.

An individual charged with a sex offense must register and re-register annually (within five business days of his or her birthday) for the rest of his or her life while residing in California or attending school or working in California.

As a sex offender, there is a possibility to have an individual’s case dismissed subsequent to probation completion (an expungement), but unfortunately, the person is required by California law to still register and re-register as a sex offender under Penal Code Section 290.

If you or someone you know is facing a sex crime, our defense lawyers have the experience and qualifications to aggressively defend your case.

If you have already been convicted of a sex crime and are facing accusations of failure to register or re-register, we can still assist you.
