He was charged in 2012 and had to register as a sex offender. At that time every address he attempted to register under they declined it stating it was a restricted area for his tier. He failed to register and ended up serving five years for “failure to register” and was released in 2017. He will have to register for 15 years. During the time he was released he had no paperwork, nothing. But he did state that when he was trying to register back in 2012 the system had him as a tier 3 so he could not register near schools, etc. This caused him to serve five years. Does he have any recourse?
You cannot retry the case now. When your brother pled the terms and conditions of sex registration was explained. Court take a very dim view of excuses by sex offenders.
If you feel that he is being treated unfairly then you need to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to assist him.
