Peoria Attorney Handling Sex Offender Registration Cases
Sexual offenders are generally required to keep their name on a public registration list after their case has concluded. They are then required to keep their registration up to date over time. Failure to meet these requirements can result in incarceration, fines, and additional penalties. If you find yourself charged with failing to maintain your registration then it is important that you retain counsel as soon as possible. I am a Peoria criminal defense attorney who assists Illinois residents charged with a failure to register. If you need to speak with a lawyer then contact my office today.
Lawyer helping Peoria, Illinois defendants who fail to register as a sexual offender
Illinois requires that sex offenders file an initial registration and that it be kept up to date. This is true even if the offense happened in another state. Failure to follow these requirements, or providing false information during registration, will be charged as a Class 3 felony, which carries a sentence of two to five years. Subsequent charges of failing to register will be considered a Class 2 felony and will carry a sentence of three to seven years. Finally, if one is on probation when they fail to register then they will likely face a probation revocation hearing.
