Most other sex crimes in Missouri carry lifetime registration requirements.
What does petitioning to get off a registry entail? First, sex offenders have to figure out whether they’re eligible to file such a petition, which likely requires help from a lawyer.
Once a person is in the registry, he or she faces a thicket of reporting requirements lasting anywhere from five years to a lifetime.
See above for an example of how the petition process works in Missouri.
A man in Mississippi was recently found guilty of violating his registration requirements because he unknowingly registered an address that was too close to a school.
In Chicago, sex offenders have been arrested for failing to register, even though busy law enforcement offices actually turned them away.
The legal issues are sufficiently complex that some states, like New York, provide a right to counsel for an appeal of a sex offender registration requirement.
Fifteen states have no process at all for petitioning to be removed from the registry. In California, a lifetime-registration state, the Sex Offender Management Board recently proposed introducing a petition process that would take into account the type of crime committed and the risk of reoffending.
Usually, the more serious the crime, the longer the registration period. If you’re under 21 and convicted of having consensual sex with someone older than 14, you benefit from a special “Romeo and Juliet” exception that allows you to petition for removal after two years.
