How Can Offenders Be Removed From The Registry?
Individuals may be required to register as a sex offender if they are convicted of a sexual offense. Some offenses will require individuals to register for the rest of their lives while others will have a shorter time frame.
Individuals not required to register for life may be able to petition to have their name removed from the registry. Pamela knows how to handle these complex cases, which require offenders to show that they have not committed any other sex crime and that they are not a threat to society.
Convicted offenders can also petition to have their assessed level lowered. A committee ranks convicted sex offenders from a level of one to four, with four being the most restrictive. The assessed level impacts if and what type of notification is required for a person’s employer, neighbors and the community. Pamela can help clients file an administrative appeal to ask the court to assess them at a lower level, which could significantly change the overall impact of an offender’s conviction.
The stigma associated with being a convicted sex offender can significantly affect a person’s way of life. Pamela can protect clients’ rights and help them find the best possible outcome in their situation.
She understands the criminal justice system and how the committee reviews and ranks offenders. Her knowledge and experience allow her to find new and creative ways to resolve the issue all while keeping her client’s best interests in mind.
