Life as a Registered Offender

Did you know that if you plead guilty or are found guilty of most sex crimes, aside from the severe penalties involving state prison or jail time, you may have to spend the rest of your life registering as a sex offender? Under California law, once you have been convicted of most sex crimes, you will have to register your name, offense, address and any distinguishing characteristics about yourself to a public website as well as register with a local police or sheriff's department. Failure to do so can result in jail sentencing, fines, and probation.

The list of California crimes that can lead to the California sex offender registration requirement is long. But some of the most common sex crimes on the list include:

The list of California crimes that can lead to the California sex offender registration requirement is long. But some of the most common sex crimes on the list include:

  • Most violations of California rape law under the California Penal Codes’ 261 sections,
  • Penal Code 243.4 PC sexual battery,
  • Most sex crimes involving minors, such as lewd acts with a child under Penal Code 288 PC, California child pornography crimes, and aggravated and/or continuous sexual abuse of a child under Penal Codes 288.5 and 269,
  • Forced non-intercourse sex acts such as oral copulation by force or fear or Penal Code 289 forcible penetration with a foreign object,
  • Violations of California “indecent exposure” law, and
  • Human trafficking for prostitution-related purposes or for child pornography purposes.

California judges may also require a criminal defendant to register as a sex offender if he or she is convicted of an offense that is not on that list—if the judge concludes he or she committed the crime as a result of sexual compulsion or for sexual gratification.
