The answer would depend on how long you were supposed to be on the registry and whether or not you have had additional legal problems since being required to register as a sex offender. Removal from the registry is not automatic.
There are a limited number of circumstances where a court might grant you relief from sex offender registration. Alabama's relief process is very limited and narrow for complete relief, but it is a bit easier to get relief from the work or residency restrictions. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney experienced in post-conviction matters to see what avenues of relief might be available to you.

As an alternative to relief from Alabama's Sex Offender Registry, you may be eligible to seek a pardon. If a pardon is granted, you would not be subject to registration, as a pardon acts to remove the taint of conviction.
