Sex Offenders Different Tiers In Michigan

Individuals who have been convicted of a sex crime are required to register as a sex offender in Michigan Sex Offender Registration. The period of registration lasts a minimum of 25 years, and under certain circumstances, for life. A registered sex offender is required to register his or her address with law enforcement and update that information whenever he or she moves.


 

Registering as a sex offender can have a significant impact on one's personal and professional life. Relationships with family members can be greatly strained. Getting a job can be difficult when a background check is required. Even renting an apartment can be difficult. This is in addition to the criminal penalties associated with a sex crime conviction, including fines and prison time.
