If you have been accused of a sex crime in California and convicted of the following offenses, you are subject to Penal Code (PC) 290 sex registration.
Duties to register must be strictly complied
Duties to register must be strictly complied with since failure to do so, could be charged as a felony crime. PC 290 requires the defendant to personally register your primary address with your local law enforcement agency within five working days of your sentence (if no jail/prison is imposed); release from custody, or discharge from a hospital or a mental institution. Once you are required to register, the court notifies the California Department of Justice who then monitors your reporting compliance. In general, the defendant must annually update their information within five working days of their birthday. Other reporting requirements depend on whether the defendant moves, a transient, judge declares you a sexually violent predator or enrolled at or employed by a California colleges or universities.
You are required to personally report your new information
Anytime a defendant moves, you are required to personally report your new information to the local law enforcement agency within five working days of the move. If you have more than one residence, you must report each of your addresses. If the defendant moves outside of California, the new home state may have additional requirements in accordance with their state laws. If you do not have a permanent residence (a transient), the defendant must report the area in which you are physically present at least once every thirty days. If the individual does not remain in one location for a period of five days, you must report to the agency, in which you are physically present on the fifth working day following your order to register. If you are physically present on a California college or university or in any of their facilities, the defendant must report also to the campus police.
