Part of the requirements after being convicted of a sex offense may be that you have to register with your local police department, and that registration may be once a year or again, depending on the type of charge you plead guilty to, could actually be every 90 years. Failure to register with that local police department is in it of itself, a separate crime of failure to register. That crime is a third degree indictable offense heard in the superior court, which is punishable by between three and five years in state prison. If you’ve been charged with this offense, it’s important to find an attorney who can discuss all of your legal options with you and any defenses you may have to this charge.
