What Will Be Required To Get Off The Sex Offender Registry?
The statutory criteria for petitioning to be relieved of sex offender registration are complex and difficult to navigate. The requirements vary significantly, depending upon your status at the time of your conviction and how the local courts interpret your sentence. If you were a juvenile at the time of your conviction, different requirements will be applied. Complicating matters is the fact that the criteria are not uniformly interpreted from one county to the next. Some counties have set out additional criteria that must be complied with.
Petition to be removed from the sex offender registry: In most cases, your petition must be made in the county where your sex offense conviction occurred. If you were convicted in another state, but currently reside in Washington, your petition is filed in the county in which you reside.
In addition to helping you fight to end your registration requirements, we can help you fight additional charges and penalties if you have failed to register, per the terms of your initial sentence.
