Sex Offender Registration
Anyone convicted as a sex offender has to register with the state of New Hampshire so authorities can keep track of where they live and what they are doing.
If you’ve been charged with a sex crime involving children, you need the immediate advice from an aggressive criminal defense attorney. Michael Anzalone is your best choice. He’s successfully defended clients who have been facing these kinds of allegations.
First, it’s very important for you to understand that you are up against the wall when you are accused as a child sex offender. This is one of the worst crimes in the eye of society. So, you can expect life altering consequences. There is a stigma that goes along with this charge. You and your family may be immediately shunned by your other relatives, friends and even employers. You may lose your job. It’s a serious crime and you will want to secure a legal team to help you.

But you need to understand the kinds of punishment you face. There are a number of offenses that require registration with the state of New Hampshire. This includes, but isn’t limited to, sexual assault, rape, kidnapping, sexual abuse, statutory rape, child pornography, sex trafficking, using recording devices to invade privacy, some prostitution-related offenses, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and indecent exposure.
So, if you are charged with any of these offenses, you could upon conviction be required to register as a sex offender.
If you don’t understand this, your attorney or his or her legal team can help explain it to you. Or, as Michael Anzalone prefers, you can read up on the state laws pertaining to these charges in the state statutes, at RSA 651-B.
In New Hampshire, there is a “tier” system for registering offenders. Less serious offenders are listed in Tier One, which requires a 10-year registration. The most serious offenders which includes murder and extreme violence are required to register with the state for a lifetime of supervision.
The registry requires, of course, your name and address. But it also requires you to list your landlord’s name and contact information, your place of employment, and volunteer work or other kind of work where minors may be present, vehicle registration, your birthdate and Social Security number. A recent photo and your fingerprints and DNA samples are also required. And the state needs to know your online identifiers, including email addresses and screen names.
As a convicted sex offender, you will also be required to submit to random inspections and compliance checks and investigators can drop in on you at any time.
So, as you can see, being dubbed a sex offender is a serious matter.
