Failure To Register As Sex Offender
New Brunswick Megan’s Law Sex Crimes Attorney
Under N.J.S. 2C:7-2 of the New Jersey Criminal Code, you are required to register as a sex offender in cases involving child molestation, rape, criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual contact with a minor and statutory rape. Instituted under Megan’s Law, failure to register as a sex offender is a serious offense of the third degree that can result in three to five years in prison. Further, under 2C:43-3, the sentencing judge may order you to pay fines and restitution, or require you to pay a fee to the New Jersey Sex Crime Victim Treatment Fund under 2C:14-10. Consequently, failure to register as a sex offender can create a number of legal and financial complications.
If your child has been accused of a crime it is important that neither you or your children answer questions, make statements or consent to searches by law enforcement.

Issues Associated with a Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
If, for whatever reason, you move and fail to register as a sex offender in your new location, it’s essential that you seek legal representation immediately. If you step forward of your own will and notify the court of your mistake, it’s more likely the charges and sentence against you will be reduced, if not dismissed.
However, if you wait until the court discovers that you haven’t registered as a sex offender, you face harsher penalties and may incur additional fines as mentioned above. As such, stepping forward is your best option, especially with the help of our sex crimes attorneys who understand how the court views a failure to register as a sex offender and what can be done to minimize the consequences of that failure.
