Committing a sex crime is one of the most serious offenses prosecuted in California. Along with lengthy prison terms associated with a sex crime conviction, the Sex Offender Registration Act requires the individuals convicted of certain sex crimes to register as a sex offender for life. Once released from confinement, a person must register as a sex offender with the law enforcement authorities in the county or city of his or her residence within five working days. Additionally, if such person is attending college or university, he or she must also register as a sex offender with the school authorities.
Penal Code Section 290 lists certain crimes that require registration under the act. Some of the offenses that require registration under this act include rape, sexual battery, and sex crimes against children. Registration can also be required for crimes not listed under Section 290 if such crimes were sexually motivated and the court makes a specific finding about it. The law requires a person to re-register annually. However, in some instances such individual must register every ninety days. New registration is also required every time a person changes his or her name, address, or place of employment.
