I'm a Sex offender Age 16 sex with a minor. Would I have to register in Indiana?

Asked about 1 year ago - San Jose, CA

I'm a sex offender in California. My charge was sex with a minor. My "victim's" age was 16. Its been almost ten years ago. I'm moving to Indianapolis, Indiana soon. Where the age of consent is 16. So my question is. Would I still be considered a sex offender in the state of Indiana? If 16 is the legal age of consent in the state?

    Answered . You need to pose this question for an attorney in Indiana. However, your conviction that occurred ten years ago, was the cause of your registration. So your moving to another state with lower age of consent does not change the nature of your previous conviction and/or the consequence.
