What Does Sex Offender Registration Affect?

While the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation must mean well by creating national sex offender registries, the end result is often the unnecessary destruction of the accused or convicted person’s life. Sometimes referred to as a ‘blacklist’ by those in the criminal justice system, a sex offender registry can completely dismantle someone’s ability to lead a normal life for the rest of their life.

Consequences tied to being on a sex offender list include:

  • Loss of educational opportunities
  • Automatic disqualification from certain jobs
  • Difficulty moving to and from neighborhoods
  • Harmful social bias or harassment

People who see a name on a sex offender registry do not view the person behind it, and quickly judge them without knowing the details of the case. In some situations, a false accusation, exaggeration, or misunderstanding led to the conviction. In turn, that conviction leads to the disintegration of their normal lives. It is a harsh system that needs to be challenged by defense attorneys.

Details About Sex Offender Registry in Arizona

Sex crime convicts in Arizona will be assigned a certain “risk” level upon sentencing. The higher the risk level, the more details that must be added to their sex offender registration form and the longer they will exist on the list. For most sex offenders convicted of misdemeanor sex crimes, registration lasts between 5 and 10 years, and will include their name, address, and violation.

Registration will also include a variety of different requirements and conditions. Most registrants need to reregister and update their information once a year, or face criminal penalties. High risk level sex offenders may need to register as often as once every three months. Registrants of all sorts are also barred from living within certain distances of schools, and must notify new communities, educational institutions, and employers of their registrant status.

Who Can Access the Sex Offender List?

In Arizona, the details of the sex offender list are not shown openly to the public; only law enforcement officers can view it at their own discretion. However, this does not mean that the information is permanently hidden away from others. If there is valid reason to access the sex offender registration, such as hiring a new employee in a workplace that frequently has children within it, anyone can petition the court to grant them access to it.
