Failure to Register in Dallas
Lawyer Representing Defendants Charged with Failure to Register
Failure to register is a crime that is committed when a person who has been convicted of a sex crime in the state of Texas does not list his/her name on the sex offender registry. In Texas, people who have been convicted of sex crimes must enlist their names on the sex offender registry. It is absolutely mandatory for sex offenders. When a convicted sex offender does not list his/her name within the registry, he/she may be charged with failure to register by Texas law enforcement.
People who have been convicted of sex crimes in Texas will have to comply with the mandatory sex offender registration laws. When a person is convicted of a sex crime, he/she will be sentenced with lifetime registration, 10 year registration or juvenile registration. People who have been sentenced with lifetime registration will have to meet registry requirements for the rest of their lives whereas people who have been sentenced with 10 years registration will be able to move forward and stop registering their names after 10 years' time.
When a person fails to register, he/she can be charged with failure to register, which may lead to further legal penalties if he/she is convicted. For this reason, convicted sex offenders should always make sure that they are meeting registration requirements and that they are updating the state anytime they move, change their addresses or change their names.
