Sex Offender Registry Board
If you’ve been convicted of certain sex offenses you might have to register with the Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB). SORB classifies former offenders as Level 1, 2 or 3. Each classification level triggers differing degrees of registration requirements as well as varying rules about how much of your information will be shared with the public.
Practice before SORB is highly specialized, and effective representation requires an understanding of the science of recidivism and careful application of the regulatory factors SORB considers in determining classification levels to the facts of each client’s unique case. Laura has extensive experience representing clients at SORB classification hearings, SORB reclassification petitions to get classification levels reduced, judicial appeals in the superior courts, and appeals of classification levels in the Appeals Court.
