Who Is Required to Register?

Sex offender registration is often required for individuals convicted of:

Prior to being released from prison, registration must be completed by county sheriffs and the department of public safety. This can affect where a person can live, their ability to secure employment, any educational opportunities, and more. For this reason, having strong defense is crucial in these cases.

Arizona Sex Offender Registration Requirements

Any individual who is convicted of a sex crime in Arizona must keep the registration updated with any home or business addresses. Other information must also be kept up-to-date. This is because the sex offender registration limits the individual’s proximity to schools, parks, or certain locations where children may be. Any time the registered sex offender moves or changes jobs, this information must also be updated.

Registered Sex Offenders vs. Registered Predators

While sexual offenders are required to register, sexual predators are required to register as well as undergo a review before their release. Anyone who meets the criteria of violent sexual predator after an extensive review will be held at an Arizona hospital after their release from prison.

Registration Requirements for Travel

Those registered as sex offenders in Arizona are required to register themselves in states they visit if they are going to be staying for at least 10 days or more. Any registered sex offender who fails to register their visitation in another state can be charged with an additional Class 4 felony offense.

Driver's License Requirements

Anyone who is convicted of a sex offense and required to register as a sex offender in the state must get a special type of driver's license from the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) if they wish to drive after their release. Driving without this type of license can result in a Class 1 misdemeanor charge.

Residence Restrictions

Only certain sex offenders are limited on where they can live. Some judges, if they see fit, can prohibit an offender from living within a certain proximity to a school or public area.
