Examining the realities of Florida's sex crime registry -- IV

This past summer, our blog began providing some background information on the sex crime registry here in Florida, examining the distinction between sexual offenders and sexual predators, the basic registration requirements for both, and the ability of these parties to be removed from the registry.

As part of our ongoing effort to help explain how the system works, and demonstrate just how burdensome it can be, today's post will focus on how even those from out-of-state must abide by its many requirements.

Work and school: No escaping registration   

Both federal and state laws dictate that anyone who is required to register as a sexual offender/sexual predator in their home state must also register in any state in which they work or attend school -- even if only on a temporary basis.

Indeed, Florida law provides that those sexual offenders/sexual predators who must register with a temporary address in the state are subject to all of the reporting requirements we outlined in part two of this series.

A temporary address is defined as any location where the sexual offender/sexual predator is working, practicing a vocation, or enrolled as a student for any length of time.

These workers and students should be aware that their profile will be featured on the website for the Florida Sexual Offender/Predator Public Registry during their time spent in the Sunshine State and that this information will not be removed once they leave.

Furthermore, even if they are someday no longer required to register in their home state, this in no way guarantees that they will no longer be subject to Florida's registration requirements.   

As evidenced by the forgoing, this is an exceedingly complex legal matter. As such, whether you are planning to be in Florida for any length of time and would like to learn more about your requirements under the state's sex crime registry, or you are currently under investigation anywhere in the state, consider speaking with an experienced legal professional as soon as possible.
