Sex Offender Registry in Virginia

Richmond Criminal Defense Lawyer

Searching for an attorney for sex offender registry in Richmond? There are various sex crimes that if convicted, will require registration as a sex offender. This is no minor issue. Your photograph, the address where you live, the crime for which you were convicted will all be easily accessible by anyone with a computer, mobile phone or other device. You can face incredible scrutiny, neighborhood problems, and may even be forced to live within a certain distance of a school or part, if the case involved a minor.

Sex Offender Registry in Virginia: Crimes Requiring Registration

Virginia law provides for registration of sex offenders under Chapter 8, Title 9.1 of the Code of Virginia. The goal of the registry is to allow residents to understand who lives in their neighborhood, to protect the public from risk. There are certain offenses that, upon conviction, will include this requirement.

These include the following crimes: Abduction for Immoral Purposes, Rape, Carnal Knowledge of a Minor, Forcible Sodomy, Object Sexual Penetration, Aggravated Sexual Battery, Sexual Battery (perpetrator 18 years or older, victim under 6), Attempted Rape, Indecent Liberties with a Minor, as well as cases in which there has been 2 or more convictions for Child Pornography. There are other offenses beyond these that will require registration as a sex offender.
