Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

In Florida, a sexual offender or sexual predator is required to notify law enforcement of where they are living immediately after release from incarceration. Furthermore, each time a sex offender changes residence, he/she must immediately notify law enforcement. In recent years, if a sex offender missed the exact registration requirements by a few days, the State would frequently allow them to correct the problem without punishment. Now, even if the registrant misses the requirement deadline by an hour, the State will often seek to put the offender in prison. There are no cases where it is more important have the representation of a competent attorney than sex crimes.
