How To Get Off The Sex Offender Registry

One of the most serious consequences of a sex crime conviction is the requirement that the defendant register as a sex offender with the state of Colorado. Having to register can have a tremendous impact on your employment prospects, family life, options for housing and standing in the community. For this reason, many people who have been convicted of sex-related crimes have questions about removal from Colorado's sex offender registration.

At Anaya-McKedy, P.C., in Colorado Springs, we help clients currently facing allegations of sex crimes as well as those who have been convicted and want to have their names removed from the registration.

Can I Have My Name Taken Off The Sex Offender Registry?

In some cases, you may be able to petition to Discontinue Registration as a Sex Offender if:

  • You have registered for the minimum number of years required by your sentence and Colorado law.
  • You have not been convicted of any new sex offenses or other crimes.
  • You are not a threat to society that justifies mandatory registration.

To lawfully have your name removed, you must file a petition and have it approved by a judge. Do not simply stop registering once you have fulfilled your time requirements. You may be charged with failure to register as a sex offender, a serious crime that could add even more time to your sentence.

The experienced criminal defense attorneys of Anaya-McKedy, P.C., can help you apply the requirements to your situation and present your case to the judge. Let us fight for you when you need it most.
