Registration requirements for sex offenders

If you have been arrested for and charged with a sex crime in Texas, it will be important for you to learn as much as you can about the laws that relate to these types of offenses. This learning includes becoming educated about the potential consequences associated with a conviction for a sex crime. One such consequence may be the requirement to register as a sex offender.

As explained by the Texas Department of Public Safety, any person who lives, works or goes to school in Texas and who has been convicted or adjudicated of specifically designated crimes must register with the state's Sex Offender Registry Program. This includes any person who was convicted or adjudicated of a crime in another state but now lives, attends school or works in Texas.

In addition to offenses like sexual assault, some of the offenses that may lead to the registry requirement include aggravated kidnapping if the event can be proven to have included an intent to sexually violate or abuse a person even if such an act never occurred. Possession or promotion of child pornography, prohibited sexual contact, compelling prostitution and bestiality are all other offenses that may lead a person to be required to register as a sex offender. 

If you would like to learn more about the state‚Äôs laws and programs surrounding persons accused of sexual criminal offenses and how to protect yourself against these types of allegations, please feel free to visit the sex crime defendant's rights page of our Texas criminal defense website.
