Sex Offender Registration Removal Attorneys
Having to register as a sex offender is a serious impediment for those in society. This makes it extremely difficult to find rewarding work, and severely limits housing choices. Being a registered sex offender means you will likely not be allowed to volunteer at your children in schools, or help with coaching their sport teams.
This duty does not automatically end, but their is a process to petition to have the duty to register removed. The attorneys at Newton & Hall regularly bring these petitions in courts around Washington State and know how to best prepare and present your case before a judge, for consideration. While not a simple or easy process, the right attorney can assist you greatly.
Requirements for Lifting the Duty to Register
In general, it is necessary that you have properly registered during the time that you were obligated to do so, you must also have participated in treatment, and kept a clean record. There are exceptions for all of these requirements, and in some cases there are additional requirements. The time period you must wait in order to petition for removal of the registration requirement varies depending on the crime that you were convicted of.
