How To Get Removed From The Sex Offender Registry
If you have been convicted of a sex crime in North Carolina, you are likely on the sex offender registry. This public registration has no doubt affected your relationships with family, friends, neighbors and even employers.
Fortunately, there are certain instances that allow an individual to be removed from the Sex Offender Registry.
Eligibility For Removal From The Sex Offender Registry
Certain individuals can request to be removed from the registry after ten years. However, the request can only be submitted once a year. If you are denied after applying, you must wait another year from the date of the denial to reapply for removal.
This may seem straightforward, however, removing a name from the Sex Offender Registry is actually a complicated and highly technical process.
Why Getting A Skilled Advocate To Help With The Removal Process Is Important
Depending on the circumstances, many have to reapply several times. Hiring an attorney who can help you get it done right the first time is very important.
