Once convicted, sex offenders are required to register with local law enforcement agencies within five working days of being released from a local jail or state prison or completion of any alternate sentence. Sex offenders also must re-register every year within five working days of his or her birthday, moving, or changing his or her name.
Generally, the registration requirement is a lifetime requirement. During annual registrations, the registered sex offender is required to verify his or her name and address or temporary location. Failure to register may be a felony and may count as a "Third Strike".
