Defense Against Individuals Located Throughout Asheville Facing Sex Offense Charges

A Possible Lifetime Registration On The Sex Offender Registry

Being charged with a sex crime in North Carolina carries with it very serious and long-lasting consequences — including lifetime registration on the sex offender registry.

Many alleged crimes that fall within the sex crimes category are usually initiated by an alleged victim who may not be telling the truth.

If the victim has a history of making false allegations, has a vendetta against you or may have themselves previously been abused as a child or adult, you will need someone to help investigate the charge because police may only get one side of the story.

In situations such as these you need a lawyer who not only understands the law behind the charge, but also one who will passionately defend you in trial in either state or Federal court.

The Sex Offender Registry Removal Process

In some instances, an offender can seek removal from the Sex Offender Registry, but there are strict state and federal laws and stipulations involved.

Some individuals may qualify to be removed from the SOR based on their length of registration.

Sex Offense Classifications

There are three types, or tiers, of sex offenses:

  1. Tier 1 – 15 years (with possible removal after 10 years with a clean record)
  2. Tier 2 – 25 years
  3. Tier 3 – Lifetime

While it is somewhat unclear by the North Carolina legislation and its overlap with the federal government's SORNA law, these tiers and the tier under which you might fall will depend on the crime of which you were convicted.
