Sex Offender Registry Removal
If you have been convicted of a sex crime, you may be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. Having your name on Georgia’s Sex Offender Registry can result in harassment, and the loss of your job, apartment, home, children, and family. If you are required to register as a sex offender in Georgia, you understand the stigma. You understand how our society demonizes people who have been arrested or convicted of any sex crime.
Given the current political climate surrounding sex offenders and sex offender registration, those who seek registration removal need to present a strong case that shows that they pose little to no threat to the community. Poorly drafted petitions with little to no documentation to support them are unlikely to help the person seeking removal of this invasive, burdensome requirement.
Being relieved of the requirement to register as a sex offender is difficult to do and only possible in certain circumstances – but it can be done.
At Crawford and Boyle, we work hard to help people request removal of the sex offender registration requirement, and we will take the time to explain the process of sex offender registry removal to you. The laws that govern the registration of sex offenders in Georgia are complex, and there are certain requirements you must meet in order to petition the Superior Court for removal from the Sex Offender Registry, but we can help guide you through the process. Call us today and let us guide you through the process.
