Maryland Attorneys Assisting Clients with Sex Offender Registration Cases
The sex offender registration program in Maryland is a program that was created to keep track of sex offenders who have been convicted of sex offense by the criminal justice system. The program is designed to keep track of those who are currently on probation for a sex offense as well as many of those who have already completed their criminal sentences and are no longer even on probation. A convicted sex offender is required to register in the state that he or she resides in even if the sex offense they have been convicted for occurred in another state. The issue of registering as a sex offender is not one of simply registering, but is an issue of how long a person who is convicted of a sex offense has to register and how frequently. Also, most people who have been convicted of a sex offense face significant curtailment of their ability to travel even between the states for any extensive period of time. Each state has its own set of laws regarding registration. In Maryland, the information regarding registered sex offenders will be posted on a public website.
Some of the most common issues a person who is convicted of a sex offense and has to register as a convicted sex offender are the following in Maryland:
• How long a person has to register?
• How closely will the state that they are registered in keep track of them?
• Will the state send law enforcement to their job?
• Will law enforcement come and check up on them at their home?
• How badly will law enforcement humiliate the sex offender when they come to the home?
The registration requirement for sex offenders in Maryland is designed to supposedly to protect children and society by increasing the awareness of the community at large about who is living in their neighborhood. The Maryland government and the media portray convicted sex offenders as having a high risk of recidivism. However, it has been statistically proven that sex offenders have a much lower rate of recidivism than those who commit most other types of crimes.
The Maryland government claims that the benefit of the sex offender registry helps prevent sex offenders of committing future crimes. However, a number of sex offender therapists admit that the current sex offender registry programs cause a number of sex offenders who are required to register to flee the state and go into hiding in an endeavor to escape the draconian registration requirements imposed upon them. Failure to register as a sex offender in Maryland is a separate crime and results in additional significant penalties. Lately, there has been a surge of actions filed in state and federal courts regarding the constitutionality of the retroactive aspect of the sex offender registration laws.
