Hartford Sex Offender Registry Attorney

What Is the Difference Between a Tier 1, 2, & 3 Sex Offenders in Connecticut?

State law ranks sex offenses on a "tier." In some jurisdictions, convicted sex offenders not only have to register but may also face limitations on where they can live, being in any location where minors could be present such as parks, schools or playgrounds, or the use of the internet.

  • Offenders convicted of Tier I crimes must register for 15 years and verify annually. Tier I offenses are generally nonviolent where the victim is at or above the age of consent, such as sexual contact without permission or public indecency.
  • Tier II offenses require registration for 25 years and semiannual verification, and include sex trafficking of minors, sexual contact with minors ages 12 through 15, production or distribution of child pornography, and others.
  • Tier III sex offenses require lifetime registration and quarterly verification. These crimes include sexual acts involving force or carried out under threat, sexual contact with a child under age 12, non-parental kidnapping or false imprisonment of minors, and some other serious felony offenses.

Hartford Sex Offender Defense Legal Counsel

Sex offender registration requires those convicted of certain sex crimes to register as a sex offender once released from prison. The sex offender registry is open to public access, allowing people to view the locations, photos, and the crime committed by any sex offenders that live in their community.

If you are facing a sex crime charge, then you are at risk of being forced to register as a sex offender with all of the consequences, including becoming a social pariah or becoming the focus of demonstrations by community members who want you to move out of their neighborhood. Registration will follow you to any state or community you move into, marking you as a criminal even if you are fully rehabilitated or had been falsely accused and convicted.
