Once convicted of a sex crime, your life may change forever. With sex crimes come the possibility of a lengthy jail sentence and / or face possible lifetime registration as a sex offender, on top of the negative social stigma you will face from a mere accusation. Registering as a sexual offender means that your name, address, picture, and criminal history will be available to the public in a sex offender database that is published online for everyone to see. The database has the potential impact your personal relationships, employment, and education prospects. In addition, depending on your sex crime conviction, being registered sex offender could mean you are prohibited from going within 500 feet of a school or school property, or public park, severely limiting where you could live.
