• Who must register as a sex offender?

    Individuals convicted by a court of law of a sexual offense must register. The term and category of registration depends on the crime of conviction, the age of the victim and the date that the offense was committed.

    "Convicted" means when the person:

    1. Is found guilty of a crime by a jury or judicial officer;
    2. Enters a plea of guilty or nolo contendere;
    3. Is granted a probation before judgment** after a finding of guilt for a crime if the court, as a condition of probation,orders compliance with the requirements of this subtitle; or
    4. Is found not criminally responsible for a crime.
