On November 5, 2011, deputies, sergeants and investigators went to the homes of 64 convicted sex offenders in Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Simi Valley and unincorporated East County areas of Ventura County. Deputies arrested a 55-year old man on an outstanding warrant issued earlier for failure to register with police as a sex offender.
Under California law, sex offenders must annually, either five days before or five days after their birthday, come into the sheriff’s record department in Ventura and leave on file their address, phone number, place of employment, vehicle make, model and year and other details. Convicted sex offenders without a permanent address must notify law enforcement of their whereabouts every 30 days.
In California, failing to register as a sex offender is codified under Penal Code Section 290.023. The punishments associated with a felony conviction for failing to register are severe. If convicted of a felony for failing to register as a sex offender, a person faces up to three-years custody
