Sex Offender Registration Guidelines

All states have a sex offender registry system for those who have been convicted of qualifying sex crime. There are minor differences between the individual states as to registration requirements, such as the time an offender is allowed in which to register. In Virginia the time allowance is very short. A person who is released after serving time has only three days to register. A change of address requires registration within three days.

An offender must fill out a registration form 10 days prior to moving out of the State. Out of State offenders who move to Virginia have three days to register.
