Failure to Register as a Sex Offender in Florida
If you are accused of failing to register as a sex offender, you face a serious legal challenge. Failure to register as a sex offender is, itself, a third-degree felony, and naturally follows at least one prior criminal conviction. Because rules regarding registration are fairly clear, it can be difficult to obtain leniency from the courts. Therefore, it’s important that you seek legal help following failure-to-register charges.

We understand that the requirement to register with the sheriff’s office and the department of motor vehicles can be confusing, as are registration requirements regarding birth dates, relocations and other factors.
