What Offenses Are Subject to Sex Offender Registration?

Social Stigma of the Sex Offender Registry

Individuals who have been accused of a sex crime are often concerned about the potential of being on the sex offender registry. This is because being on the sex offender registry carries with it a very negative social stigma that can affect a person for the rest of his or her life. That is why clients facing sex crimes often ask: What offenses are subject to sex offender registration?

According to Utah Cod. Ann. § 77-27-21.5, and the Utah Department of Corrections’ website, the following offenses are subject to sex offender registration (including attempt, solicitation or conspiracy of any of the felonies listed below):

  • Kidnapping
  • Child kidnapping
  • Aggravated kidnapping
  • A felony or class A misdemeanor violation of enticing a minor
  • A felony violation of unlawful sexual activity with a minor
  • Sexual abuse of a minor
  • Unlawful sexual conduct with a 16 or 17-year old
  • Rape
  • Rape of a child
  • Object rape
  • Object rape of a child
  • A felony violation of forcible sodomy
  • Forcible sexual abuse
  • Sexual abuse of a child or aggravated sexual abuse of a child
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Sexual exploitation of a minor
  • Incest
  • Lewdness (four convictions)
  • Sexual battery (four convictions)
  • Lewdness involving a child
  • Aggravated exploitation of prostitution
  • Aggravated human trafficking
  • Sexual exploitation of a vulnerable adult
  • Custodial sexual relations (under age of 18)
  • A felony or class A misdemeanor violation of voyeurism
  • Sodomy of a child

If you are facing any of these charges, seek my experienced criminal defense representation immediately. You face the probability of 15 years or even a lifetime on the sex offender registry.

You should also be aware of how stringent the laws have become. You must now report to the sex offender registry office twice a year (once on your birthday and six months after that). If you fail to do so, you will receive an automatic 90 days in jail and there is no possible waiver.
