Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
After being convicted of a sex crime, many individuals are required to register as sex offenders. If you are required to register, your situation will most likely require mandatory sex offender registration for life. According to California law, a sex offender is required to register and re-register with the proper authority at particular intervals. These requirements will be communicated to the offender, along with consequences of failing to register as a sex offender, which may occur intentionally or unintentionally.
