Every criminal charge carries serious penalties, but few charges carry the kinds of life-altering penalties that sex-related offenses do. In addition to jail time, fines and other such consequences, a conviction on a sex charge may also require you to register with any of a number of state or federal sexual offender registries. Having your name listed on such a registry negatively can impact your life in more ways than you can imagine — including your job, where you live and how society views you.
If you or someone you love is charged with a sex offense in Maryland, you need to have the most experienced, trustworthy legal team you can find at your side. You need DuBoff & Associates, Chartered.

Sex offender registration
If you are a convicted sex offender in the state of Maryland, it is likely that the county sheriff will place your name on the state sex offender registry once your probation is over. You may also be required to register on certain federal lists. Having your name on such a list can impact your life in many negative ways:
- You may have difficulty finding a place to live.
- Your registration status will come up when you look for a job and may bar you from any sort of employment that brings you into close proximity with children.
- You may face public retribution or humiliation once your status becomes public.
Sex offender registration can last for ten years and in some cases for life. An experienced attorney understands how to fight to keep your name off a sex offender registration list, even if you are convicted. It is also possible, albeit more difficult, to have your name removed from a sex offender registry after it has been added.
