Sex Offender Registry
If you are found guilty of this offense, in addition to incarceration and fines, you will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. That means you would have to submit your personal details to the local sheriff’s office periodically. Your information is recorded in an online system, and some data is accessible to the public. You will also face certain limitations, as some city and county ordinances restrict where a registered sex offender can live, whom they can contact, and what community areas they can’t visit. Having your name on the registry can negatively affect your career, your personal relationships, and your social life. It is important that you take action to protect yourself from even an accusation of sexual misconduct.
The sex offender registry includes information such as:
- Your full legal name and any aliases you may go by
- A recent photo
- Your current address, updated on a regular basis and any time that you move
- Tattoos, scars, and other identifiable information
- The crime that you were convicted of
- Your height and weight
In addition to the sex offender registry, convicted individuals could face jail or prison time, be made to pay restitution to victims and court fees, be made to attend mandatory court-ordered classes and community service, and face probation and fines.
The requirement to register as a sex offender can only be removed under the state’s “Romeo & Juliet Law.” This statute applies if the alleged victim was between 13 and 17 years of age, and was not more than 4 years younger than you at the time of the offense.
Can Sex Offenders Go to Church in Florida?
Sex offenders are usually allowed to go to church in Florida and they are also allowed to teach Sunday school. Sex offenders should still ask their probation officer if they are allowed to go to a church. The church must also be fully informed of the sex offender's criminal background. Also, when a senior member of the church or the pastor is informed of a sex offender in the church, they can also impose the following restrictions:
- The sex offender will not transport minors to or from church, or any church activity.
- The sex offender will not work with minors in any capacity in the church.
A single violation of these conditions will result in an immediate termination
of the sex offender’s privilege to attend the church.
