Sex Offender Registration in FL

Panama City Sex Crimes Attorney

The State of Florida has some of the harshest requirements in the country when it comes to sex offender registration. State law has two designations for individuals who are convicted of sex crimes—sexual predators and sexual offenders.

Both sexual offenders and sexual predators are required to register in person with local law enforcement. If you have been arrested for a sex crime in Panama City, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately to fight your charges.

Protecting Your Freedom

After being released from prison, a sex offender has 48 hours to register in person with the local sheriff's department. The information required by the sheriff's department will include the full name, phone number and current address. The offender may be required to provide additional information including their social security number, current employer, email address and the make and model of their current vehicle.

If you have been charged with a sex crime, you still have the right to privacy.

  • False imprisonment
  • Sexual battery
  • Unlawful sexual activity with certain minors

Florida Sex Offender Laws

Florida Sex Offender Laws

Florida prohibits anyone convicted of a sex crime committed against a child under 16 years old from living within 1,000 feet of a school, daycare, park, or bus stop. A non-compliant offender that fails to register properly can be charged with a third-degree felony and be sentenced to additional jail time.

There are also restrictions placed on where a registered sex offender can work. If the victim was a minor, a sex offender may not work at any business, school, daycare, park, playground, or any other location associated with children.
