If you have been convicted of a sex offense you will be required to register with the law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where you live. If you have more than one residence you are required by law to register in the jurisdiction of each residence. One must register within five business days after release from incarceration or after entry of judgment and sentence. Temporary residence for sex offenders must also register within five days of arrival in Colorado. Even those receiving a Deferred Judgment and sentence must register.
Philip M. Smith has over 35 years of legal experience as a
istrict attorney, judge, and a private attorney
practicing in all areas of criminal defense law.
Colorado Bureau of Investigation maintains a database of all persons required to register. The information CBI keeps and can release includes identifying information, address and photographs of sex offenders. Further, CBI is required to make information available on the Internet identifying those found to be sexually violent predators or any person convicted of two or more sex offenses or crimes of violence and any person convicted as an adult who fails to register. You will be required to notify law enforcement of any changes in residence or occupants in your home.
Some sex offenders have additional requirements and those vary significantly. Depending on the offense, a sex offender may have terms of registration from 5, 10, 15 and 20 years to a life time term of registration. Some sex offenses require reporting to the sex offender registry every 90 days or once a year on your birthday. There may also be restrictions about living near schools or even living with your children. If a sex offender moves out of state they must deregister in the present jurisdiction and re-register in the new place of residence.
There may be additional requirements set forth by probation or parole conditions.
