Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
Phoenix Sex Crime Lawyers on Your Side
Arizona requires individuals convicted of felony sex crimes to register
as sex offenders. If you fail to do so, you will be faced with a further
charge: Failure to Register. This is considered to be a crime and you
will face penalties if you are found to be guilty. As felony sex offenders
are required to register within a specific period of time, if you fail
to do so, even if it is a mere error on your part, it will likely be considered
that you are not rehabilitated and you are still a serious danger to society.
The viewpoint is that you are "hiding" in order to commit more
similar crimes. It becomes necessary to defend yourself under these conditions,
and contacting a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer at once to assist you
is an urgent matter.
