Are You Eligible for Registration Removal in California?
California Penal Code Section 290 requires many situations of sex crime conviction to also register as a sex offender. In addition, Megan's Law also puts you on a "list" that makes some of your information open to the public. These registrations affect your privacy as well as your reputation. In certain situations, sex offender registration can negatively affect your employment opportunities.
Under certain circumstances, you may be eligible to have your sex offender registration removed in one or both of PC 290 and Megan's Law. However, it is important to understand that the two registrations are considered separate, so being removed from one does not guarantee removal from the other. The circumstances of the conviction and the charges involved are important to your eligibility of removal, and so every case will be unique.
"As part of my probation I had to register as a sex offender. This was so embarrassing. I had gone to other attorneys and they treated me like I was a creep and clearly didn’t want my business, but when I went to Law Office of Michael L. Guisti they didn’t give me any uncomfortable looks, but made me feel welcome and we quickly got down to business. Michael L. Guisti did something I thought would be impossible, he got my name removed from the sex offender registration list. So anytime I moved I no longer had to report to police and it no longer came up on background checks. Thank you so much Attorney Guisti for making my life easier."
