What if I Have to Register as a Sex Offender?
A criminal conviction for a sex offense often means you need to register as a sex offender. Sex offenders must provide law enforcement with the following:
- Name, including aliases
- Date and place of birth
- Social security number
- Place of employment
- Date and place of conviction;
- Crime convicted
- Schools where employed or attending classes
- License plate number and description of each vehicle owned or operated
- DNA sample
It is up to the sex offender to keep this information up to date. In Wyoming, registration lasts for 10 years unless the conviction is aggravated or a second offense.
Information regarding a sex offender's residence, place of employment, and other details are made part of a public online registry. The state may also send out notification to neighbors if the court believes there is a risk of repeated offense.
