If you are convicted of a sex crime in New York, you are likely to be required to register as a sex offender. Contact a New York Sex Offender Registration Act lawyer at The Law Office of James E. Tyner, PLLC if you are concerned about sex offender registration in New York and want to investigate changing your sex offender registration level.
What does the Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) mean to you as a suspect in a sex offense case or as someone already convicted of a sex crime? If you are listed on the registry, you will then be searchable — and identified as a sex offender — by anyone via the Internet by name, county or zip code.
The Office of Sex Offender Management (OSOM), a branch of the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services, states on its Web site that its primary goal is “to protect the public, ensure that the management and supervision of sex offenders is effective and based on best practices [and] reduce future sex offenses.”
The key bottom line for you, however, is this: Regardless of whether you have been convicted already or are still battling accusations, you will best protect your reputation and your freedom by seeking counsel and assistance from an experienced sex crime defense attorney.
