Other Consequences – Megan’s Law and Sex Offender Registry
In 1994 the Legislature imposed mandatory registration requirements for those convicted of certain sex offenses pursuant to “Megan’s Law”. Essentially, a person convicted, at a minimum, has to register his or her address with the local police department in his or her community and periodically report to the police department to “verify” his or her address. In some cases, a person convicted can be sentenced to “Community Supervision for Life” which imposes a lifetime of parole supervision upon the convicted person.
