How A Conviction Can Destroy Your Life
Being forced to register as a sexual offender is just one of the severe consequences that accompanies a felony or misdemeanor sex offense. A database that is available to the public, the registry stores up-to-date information on all convicted sex offenders. This means that anyone, including your neighbors, schools and future employers, can access this information.
In addition to registering, offenders in Louisiana have to:
- Provide fingerprints and a sample of their DNA
- Pay a yearly registration fee
- Regularly renew or update their registration
- Disclose where they live and work
- Give notice whenever they move
- Carry around a special identification card
The length of time for which an individual must register will depend on the severity of their crimes. It can range anywhere from 15 years to life. Because of the restrictions in place, it is not difficult to violate the terms required by the registry. A violation can result in enhanced penalties including fines and imprisonment.
