What Are Your Rights, When They Want to Put Your Name on the List?
Everyone knows jail or prison time is very difficult to take. Intensively supervised probation is no picnic, either. But the longest lasting consequence from a sex crime conviction may be having your name added to the Minnesota Sex Offender Registry.
When a name goes on the registry, it’s there on the Internet for all to see − adding to the stigma you feel, and possibly throwing up roadblocks to your ability to obtain housing or employment later on.

What Types of Offenses Require Registration?
Many people have heard of Megan’s law, which is an unofficial name for laws requiring public safety officials to make information available about convicted sex offenders. In Minnesota, it isn’t only criminal sexual conduct convictions that require someone to register as a sex offender. Others include:
- Felony-level indecent exposure
- Statutory rape
- First Degree Second Degree, Third Degree, or Fourth Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct
- False Imprisonment (which often is charged in the context of a domestic assault case)
- Solicitation of a minor for prostitution or sexual conduct
- Child molestation
- Possession of child pornography
For some offenses, registration as a sex offender can be for life. Failure to register when you are supposed to can also result in sanctions. That is why you need to defend yourself now by getting a strong criminal defense attorney like Max A. Keller to protect your rights.
