Failure to Register Defense Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona
After being convicted of a sex crime, some people are required by law to register with Arizona’s sexual offender registry. Depending upon the specific sex crime charged, there is a specified amount of time the defendant has in which to register, and sometimes extenuating circumstances or mere forgetfulness can lead to failure to register. This offense is taken very seriously by Phoenix prosecutors and judges, for they take failure to register as an indicator that the defendant is not rehabilitated and has no desire to take responsibility for their actions.
