Sexual violence should always be taken seriously. If a person is found guilty of a sexual violence crime, regardless of the specific charges, they are not only eligible for jail time, but they may also have to register with the Sex Offender Registry for life.

Most people who serve prison time in Missouri are considered to have paid their debt to society when their term expires. This is not usually true, however, of sex offenders.
