Grand Rapids SORA Removal Lawyers
GET OFF THE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY IN MICHIGAN
After you have been convicted of a sex crime and served the penalties, you may have also been required to register on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry. This information is available to the public and can restrict your ability to obtain employment, find a place to live, and impact your personal life. Fortunately, with the help of a Grand Rapids SORA removal attorney, there may be a way for you to get your name taken off the sex offender registry.
HOW DOES SORA REMOVAL WORK?
The Sex Offender Registry Act (SORA) was recently amended. These amendments presented special scenarios in which certain individuals would be allowed to petition to remove themselves from the sex offender registry and no longer be required to report to local law enforcement.
A few examples of circumstances which may qualify you for SORA removal include:
- The complainant and registrant had less than four years of an age difference
- The contact between the complainant and registrant was consensual
- The complainant was not under the age of 13 years old
- The registrant was a juvenile at the time of the arrest
