Sex Offender Registry Removal
No one wants to be classified as a “sex offender.” This comes with a very negative connotation. Before now, it has been impossible to be removed from the Utah Sex Offender Registry. Attorney Matthew Kober was the first attorney in Utah to successfully remove someone from the registry under the new law. If you are interested in sex offender registry removal, Utah Expungement Attorney Matthew Kober can help you get removed from the registry starting TODAY!
A new law was just passed in May 2012 that gives persons listed on the registry an opportunity to be removed under certain circumstances. The Utah State Legislature established a procedure under U.C.A. § 77-41-112 that allows listed persons to apply for removal from the registry.
If you were convicted of one of four specific offenses, you can apply for removal from the sex offender registry. These four offenses are:
1) Kidnapping under U.C.A. § 76-5-301,
2) Unlawful Detention under U.C.A. § 76-5-304,
3) Unlawful sexual activity with a minor under U.C.A. § 76-5-401 (and you were not more than 10 years older than the victim at the time of the offense, and
4) Unlawful sexual activity with a 16 or 17 year old under U.C.A. § 76-5-401.2 (and you were not more than 10 years older than the victim at the time of the offense).
There are a number of other requirements that must be met in order to apply for removal from the sex offender registry. Some of the requirements include: all treatment has been completed, the offender has always been compliant with registration, more than five years has passed, all restitution has been paid, and the offender has not been convicted of any other offense, besides traffic offenses.
