The serious nature of the Louisiana sex offender registry

As the Louisiana State Police have stated, they value your personal privacy less than they value getting information out to the public, at least if you have been convicted of sex-related crimes. The sex offender registry program is designed to give the public as much information about you as possible, including your name, your picture and where you live.

The crimes that fall under this category vary to some degree, including both Internet crimes and crimes of a more immediate nature. Some of the more common charges include those for rape, statutory rape, sexual assault, battery and solicitation. Internet crimes could also include solicitation, attempting to meet up with a minor and the distribution of child pornography.

If you are convicted of one of these crimes, you are most likely going to be told by the court that you must put your name on the sex offender registry. You then have to do this or more criminal charges could be filed, and you also have to alert the registry every time you move.

In some cases, your name has to stay on the registry for the rest of your life. It can have a huge impact on your ability to get a job, your relationships with your neighbors and many other aspects of your life.

As you can see, this is an incredibly serious matter, and it needs to be dealt with in a professional manner to craft a legal defense; this is often best done even before charges have been filed. If you want to learn more about how this works or if you have any questions, please check out our page on sex offenses as soon as you can.
