As stated, a large block of these offenses falling under the mandatory sex offender registration requirements of Megan’s Law. When this occurs, an individual must register with local police every time they relocate, notify neighbors and local schools of their residency and status, have their face and other information posted on the internet and/or allow for electronic monitoring. The minimum period of participation under Megan’s Law is fifteen (15) years but can be for life for more serious sex violations.
