No sign up or registration sex
Some Registrants May Be Eligible to be Removed from the Registry The prior law provided that a person on the sex offender registry could petition to be removed from the registry.
That process could only be initiated once ten years had elapsed from the completion of the person’s sentence.
The scammers are calling registered sex offenders and advising them they are negligent in their legal requirements in some way or have missed a scheduled court date.
The caller may provide a callback number and voicemail that sounds like it belongs to local law enforcement or the USMS.
The caller tells the registered offender that they must bring payment or gift cards to a specific location to avoid arrest for missing court or failing to perform their registration duties.
A registrant who is or becomes homeless must register in person with the sheriff of the county in which he is sleeping within 72 hours of that status change, provide information on the location where he or she sleeps, maintain the required registration information for each sheriff of a county where he or she sleeps, report his or her registration within 72 hours of changing sleeping locations, and annually renew his registration within 72 hours prior to his or her birthday each year.
Registrants are no longer required to provide their email addresses, usernames and user passwords to law enforcement as part of the registration process.
