Sex Offender Registration Put a Skilled and Trial-Proven Attorney in Your Corner

Miami Sex Offender Registration Lawyer

Also Helping the Accused in Fort Lauderdale

Those convicted of sex crimes are almost always required to register as sex offenders for the remainder of their lives. This lifelong obligation is not only embarrassing because it is public record, but it could also interfere with your current employment status, future job opportunities, and would impose stricter restrictions on where you are allowed to reside.

If you have found yourself under investigation, have been arrested for a sex crime, or have already been convicted of a sex crime and are unsure if you have violated Florida's registration law, you need the legal counsel of an experienced Miami sex offender registration attorney.

If you reside in Miami call (305) 928-1669 now. If you reside in Broward County call 954-737-3004 now. The Hoffman Firm has handled thousands of criminal cases.

What is Florida's Sex Offender Registry?

Florida Statute 943.0435 requires individuals convicted of a sex crime to register as a sex offender for the remainder of their life and regularly update their personal information. Failure to comply with the many parameters of Florida's registration law is a felony offense and could result in additional fines and further incarceration.

Some of Florida's registration requirements are:

  • Reporting to local Sheriff's offices – A person convicted of a sex crime must register themselves by reporting in person to a local sheriff's office within 48 hours of being released from incarceration
  • Provide personal information for online registry – A person convicted of a sex crime must disclose a plethora of personal information that will become public record, such as; their name, date of birth, social security number, address, vehicle information, employment information, and fingerprints (among other things)
  • Reregister every time you move – A person convicted of a sex crime must reregister with the local sheriff's office by updating their address and personal information every time they relocate
  • Reregister multiple times a year – A person convicted of a sex crime must reregister with a local sheriff's office up to four times a year, depending on the offense

Failure to meet any requirement established by Florida Statute 943.0435 can result in you being arrested and charged with a third degree felony.

What are Common Sex Crimes in Florida?

Florida law classifies a wide range of criminal offenses as sex crimes.

Some of the most commonly charged sex crimes are:

  • Kidnapping a Child under the age of Thirteen (FS 787.01)
  • False Imprisonment of a Child under the Age of Thirteen (FS 787.02)
  • Luring or Enticing a child under the Age of Thirteen (FS 787.025)
  • Unlawful Sex with Certain Minors (FS 794.05)
  • Lewd and Lascivious offenses upon or in the presence of a person less than 16 (FS 800.04)
  • Computer Pornography
  • Traveling to meet a minor (FS 847.0135)
  • Procuring a Person under 18 for Prostitution (FS 796.03)

What are the Penalties for Failing to Register?

Failing to register or update personal information timely and in accordance with the law is a felony offense that would impose significant fines and more time incarcerated. If an individual has been released on probation or parole and violates and portion of Florida's registry law, they have violated the terms of their release.
