Megan’s Law & Sex Offender Registration

Megan’s Law is a California statute that is described in Assembly Bill 488. It provides the public with access to detailed information online about registered sex offenders. Before this bill was passed, registered sex offenders were only locatable if the interested individual went to a sheriff’s office or called a 900 number.

If you are convicted of a sex crime, you will likely be required to register as a sex offender. This registration can impede your ability to be near schools or public parks. Additionally, whenever you apply for an apartment or try to buy a home, the landlord or seller can check the registry and locate your name. It also may be difficult for you to secure a job if you are registered on a sex offender list.

Being convicted of a sex offense can ruin your reputation and result in serious penalties, such as:

  • Jail time
  • High fines
  • Sex offender registration
  • Probation
  • Involvement from Child Protective Services

Criminal Defense FAQ
  • I am innocent—do I still need a criminal defense attorney?
    Yes! If you have been arrested there is a chance you may be convicted, even if you truly did nothing wrong. Having a Santa Rosa criminal defense attorney from The Law Office of Joe Bisbiglia on your side can aggressively fight to protect you from false charges. An experienced attorney can make all the difference when standing up for you so your choice of representation is a very important one.
  • What is the difference between probation and parole?
    Parole takes place after a person has spent time in prison, whereas probation may be used as an actual alternative criminal sentence. Parole is usually used to monitor a person who has been released from jail. Probation is a criminal sentence for those convicted of lesser offenses.
  • How does the prosecution determine the charges I will face?
    The prosecution will look to convict you on charges they feel have sufficient evidence for a conviction. A case will typically be dropped if the prosecution feels that there is not enough evidence to reach a conviction. What constitutes enough evidence to the prosecutor is up to their discretion.
  • What is a grand jury?
    Grand juries are made up of individuals used to determine if enough evidence exists in order to take a case to trial. A grand jury will use witness testimony, documentation, and other evidence in reaching its determination. The grand jury will decide whether the case will go to trial in the end.
  • Will I be arrested for refusing to give police a statement?
    Exercising you right to silence cannot be used against you. You are protected from testifying against yourself by the Fifth Amendment. If a police officer is trying to intimidate you into giving a statement, get in touch with a criminal defense attorney immediately.
