Experienced Sex Offense Lawyers To Avoid Megan’s Law & Other Penalties
Anyone convicted of a sex crime must live with both the public stigma of being a sex offender, as well as some of the most extreme penalties provided under NJ Law. In most cases, a conviction will result in mandatory registration under Megan’s Law. This is what is commonly referred to as being a “registered sex offender.” When someone falls under this law, they are not only subject to the possibility of a state prison sentence, but are also required to register for an absolute minimum of fifteen (15) years. This always necessitates reporting your residency and whereabouts with police but may also require notification of neighbors, schools, and placement on an internet registry that is open to the public.
