Know Your Rights Regarding Sex Offender Registration

Being listed on the sex offender registry impacts your entire life. Past mistakes will follow you for the rest of your life in a very public way.

Whether you are in danger of being listed on the registry or seeking to be removed, our attorneys at Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, in St. Louis, will fight for your future.

Are You Required To Register?

Since a case called Doe v. Keathley in 2009, the guidelines surrounding the Missouri Sex Offender Registry have changed significantly. Approximately 14,000 people were affected by the decision that determined who needed to register and for which sex-related crimes.

Individuals who were told they no longer had to register are now being forced to reregister in Missouri as a sex offender based upon the requirements set forth under federal law. However, all hope is not lost. Based upon the various tiers of offenses in the federal registration laws, certain qualifying individuals are now seeing the potential opportunity to be removed from the list and putting the prior offense in the past.

Many individuals are left wondering if they are included in the decision and if their situation will be altered because of it. We carefully review these cases to determine if the client is eligible to be removed from the list. We start by conducting a thorough analysis of your original case and how it applies to the Missouri and federal registration laws. We will determine if there is any relief under the law with which we may get you removed from the registry.

If you are eligible to be removed from the registry and no longer be required to register as a sex offender, we will file the appropriate suit against the necessary parties to have your name struck from the registry.

We have successfully helped many individuals in getting names lifted from the registry.

Can You Get Your Name Removed From The List?

Many times, people whose names are on the registry were convicted years ago and often of minor offenses, including violation of the Romeo and Juliet Law (age discrepancies, often involving teenage romance).

Our attorneys are leading the fight in the courtroom battlefield in attempting to get people's names off the list who are not a threat to the community and do not deserve to be on this list. Our firm was asked to testify in front of the Missouri House of Representatives — Criminal Law Committee to discuss with our elected officials the inconsistencies and downfalls in these registration laws. The law is going to be changed — but the question remains — When? Until this time comes about, let us help you with any issues you may have.

  • Child pornography charges
