No Time To Take Chances
Many assume that the Sex Offender Registry Board could only increase classification levels following a new sex offense conviction. In reality, the SORB has broad discretion to seek upward reclassification of your level. The SORB can and often will seek to increase your classification level simply because you’ve been charged in court with a new crime – even if there is no conviction yet, and even if it’s not a sex offense.
Facing the possibility of an increased SORB classification level while you’re already dealing with an open criminal case is stressful and complex. These cases will sometimes require litigation in Superior Court, which likely calls for close collaboration with your criminal defense attorney to protect your rights in both cases.
