Sex Crime Registration
Speak with Our Pasadena Sex Crimes Attorney Today
Sex crimes can affect your life not just today, but years to come. If you are convicted of a “registerable sex offense”, at a minimum, you will be required to register yearly with your local police department. Additionally, you will be placed on the “Megan’s Law” website, which will identify you as a registered sex offender to all of the public.
If you fail to comply with the sex registration requirements, that in and of itself is another felony crime. That is why you need to hire a criminal defense attorney who knows the effect these types of charges can have on your future. At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, we know what the stakes are in these cases for our clients and what can be done to assert their rights and interests both in and outside the courtroom.
Get a former prosecutor in your corner during this critical time. Call our experienced Pasadena sex crime lawyer at (626) 784-4143 today.
When Is Registration Required?
Because sex offenders are considered a continual threat to the public, the state of California requires them to register with the local authorities. This registration prohibits these individuals from living in certain areas, holding certain jobs, and provides other restrictions.
Sex Registration offenses are indicated in Penal Code §290, and include but are not limited to:
- Murder committed in the perpetration or attempt to perpetrate
- Oral copulation
- Kidnapping to commit a sex crime
- Lewd or lascivious acts
- Forcible penetration
- Conspiracy to commit any of the above offenses
California does not take these cases lightly. Hire a criminal defense attorney with knowledge of this area of law.

Geller is ready to aggressively protect your rights and interests both in and outside of the courtroom.
