Sex offender registration is a collateral consequence to a sex offense conviction.  

Convicted sex offenders must register with the police department in the city or town where they live and must comply with mandatory counseling requirements. 

Registered offenders may also have limits on their liberties such as:

  • travel out-of-state;
  • overnight stays in locations other than their registered addresses;
  • limits on where they may live or work;
  • limits against visiting schools,
  • parks or other places where children congregate;
  • and more.  

Registered sex offenders may also be required to give up certain rights to privacy by submitting to warrantless searches of their homes, persons, phones, computers, and other electronic devices.   Some are also required to wear GPS monitoring devices so the government may track their locations and movements.
