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
  • Address
  • 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.
