Sex offenders have not only been the top stories of most local news broadcasts, but due to recent crimes in California, sex offenders are now a topic of interest in the White House. President Obama recently announced that he will make sure the Adam Walsh Child Protection And Safety Act is adequately funded. The Adam Walsh Act was signed three years ago by President George W. Bush and it promised to create a national registry of sex offenders to keep closer track of the most violent of them. However, due to lack of funds, the law was never carried out.
If you or a loved one has been convicted of a sex crime and are required to register as a sex offender, the Law Offices of Wallin & Klarich understand how you feel, especially considering all of the recent news headlines.
Wallin & Klarich can help you contest sex offender registration. If it has been 10 years since you were released from incarceration (or 10 years since your release on probation or parole) in the state of California, you are eligible for a Certificate of Rehabilitation.
A Certificate of Rehabilitation is a court order declaring that a person convicted of a felony is now rehabilitated. Once granted, the applicant is no longer required to register as a sex offender. In addition to not having to register as a sex offender, the Certificate of Rehabilitation also serves as an official document to demonstrate that the person has been rehabilitated, which could enhance employment opportunities.
