Macomb County Sex Offender Registration

About the Michigan Sex Offender Registry

If you have been charged with a sex crime, your future is at stake. Just as is the case with any type of criminal charges, you are at risk of being fined, sent to jail or prison and placed on a lengthy probation, as well as possibly struggling with the consequences of having a conviction on your criminal record. Sex crime charges, however, carry an additional penalty, and it is one which can mean that you will be subjected to enormous social stigma for many years or even for the rest of your life. Under state law, a conviction for most criminal offenses of a sexual nature carries the requirement of mandatory registration as a sex offender. The long list of registerable offenses includes, but is not limited to:

  • Child pornography
  • Aggravated indecent exposure
  • Criminal sexual conduct
  • Sex crimes against minors
  • Accosting, enticing or soliciting a child for immoral purposes
  • Kidnapping of a child

If you are convicted on the charges and ordered to register as a sex offender, you would join more than 1,350 others who are already registered in Macomb County. You would not be able to escape the requirement to register, since it applies anywhere in Michigan and even in other states. Depending on the severity of the offense, you would be required to continue to update your registration for a period ranging from 15 years to life, and failure to register may lead to an arrest and felony charges with a possible sentence of 4 years in prison and a fine of $2,000. To avoid these harsh criminal penalties, obtain the help of a hard hitting criminal defense attorney from J.T. Bowden, Attorney at Law today.

Information Included in the Sex Offender Registry

Sex offender registration does not only mean that the local law enforcement agency in your town or city would be aware of your criminal history. It actually means that anyone, anywhere in the world would be able to find this information. A publicly accessible website maintained by the Michigan State Police would feature a profile for you which would include information such as:

  • A mug shot of you
  • A detailed physical description for use in identifying you
  • Information about the crime for which you were convicted
  • Addresses for your home and place of employment
  • Description of your vehicle

Consequences of Sex Offender Registration

Potential employers and others could find you by entering your name, while your neighbors might discover you when searching by city, zip code or county. Many people even sign up to receive e-mail notification when a sex offender moves to their community. As a result, the fact of your conviction would continue to haunt you, and you may never be able to escape the social stigma of being known as a sex offender.
