Sex Offender Registration In Louisiana
The Louisiana Criminal Code requires sex offenders to register for different lengths of time, depending on the specific offense:
- If you are convicted of a Tier I sex offense, you will be required to register for 15 years. Such offenses include intentional exposure to AIDS, incest, indecent behavior with juveniles, video voyeurism and more.
- If you are convicted as a Tier II child predator, you will be obligated to register for 25 years. Such crimes include sexual battery of a minor under 18, enticing a minor into prostitution, human trafficking and more.
- If you are convicted of a Tier III aggravated offense, you must register for the rest of your life. Such offenses include aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping of a minor, second-degree sexual battery and more.
If you are required to register, it will place strict limits on where you can work, where you can live and more. Plus, the public will have access to your information, damaging your reputation and opportunities. Because of the serious effects that registration can have on your life, it is vital to fight the sex crime charge. Turn to Sanjay K. Biswas, Attorney at Law, for vigorous advocacy today.
