Potential Penalties: Indiana Sex Offender Registry
A ruling by the Indiana Supreme Court in April of 2009, Wallace v. State,
dramatically affected the law in Indiana as it relates to sex offenders
and requirements to register. It is possible, depending on your circumstance,
that you may not be required to register as a sex offender.
In the event that you are convicted of a sex crime and required to register,
you will have to comply with the Indiana sex offender registry laws. These
laws are designed to allow the public access to records that display case-specific
information about each convicted sexual offender as well as where they
live. Personal information displayed in the public database website, including
the convicted person's name, address, age, height and weight and any
other identifiable information.
If you are convicted, any alleged dangers pertaining to you can easily
be found by Indianapolis and central Indiana residents, potential employers,
and neighbors who conduct a search of the online database. Failure to
comply with mandatory registration could result in an additional criminal
charge or enhanced penalties.
