Aggressive Defense Against Those Facing Sex Offense Charges In Creek County

A conviction for a sex offense is considered a felony in the state of Oklahoma. But, unlike many other felonies, the penalties associated with a sex crime are much more drastic.

Not only do they carry harsh fines and prison time, but those convicted of any type of sex offense will be forced to register as a sex offender with the Oklahoma state Sex Offender Registry — in many cases for life.

Understanding The Oklahoma Sex Offender Registry And Its Impact

The Oklahoma Sex Offender Registry is a statewide database that contains pertinent information about an individual convicted of any type of sex offense.

When an individual is released, he or she must register with the agency in their jurisdiction and provide information including but not limited to their name, date of birth, gender, height, weight, address, information about the offense and a photograph, among others.

Public Access To Private Information

Much of this information is available to the public and, in some cases, distributed to those in the neighborhood where the offender takes up residence upon release.

Continuous Registration

The individuals must re-register every year and a failure constitutes a crime. How many years an individual will remain on the registry will be determined by his or her risk level, which is assigned by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

A low-risk, level-one offender, for example, will be on the list for 15 years (with early removal under certain circumstances). A level-two sex offender will be on the sex offender registry for 25 years.
