Can I be forced to register as a sex offender when I was not required to at the time of conviction? 1 Answers as of June 30, 2011
I was convicted of aggravated assault with intent to rape in 1993. I was not required to register as a sex offender now 17 years later my original state’s Department of Correction has caused my current state to convict me for failure to register my conviction in my current state. I never was charged with failure to register in my original state nor forced to when I was release from prison on 3-24-98. Now 19 years later I stand convicted of failure to register and now have to register for life. Can that stand?

You should consult with your own criminal attorney ASAP about your appeal rights and your ex post facto claim. Good luck!
