What if You Don't Register as a Sex Offender in Wisconsin?
Failure to register as a sex offender is a crime. If you don’t register when you're supposed to, the court can find you guilty of a Class H felony. The court can issue a warrant for your arrest, and when police find you, you’ll be taken to the judge – and you could be sent to prison.
Which Offenses Require Sex Offender Registration?
- Convicted child sex offender working with children
- Exposing child to harmful material
- False imprisonment when the victim is a minor and not your child
- First-, second- and third-degree sexual assault
- Forced viewing of sexual activity
- Possession of child pornography
- Sexual intercourse or indecent behavior with a child
What You Need to Know About Failure to Register
Failing to register as a sex offender is a serious crime – but in some cases, people who are supposed to register simply lose track of what they’re supposed to do. In some cases, people are required to verify their addresses every 90 days; in others, it’s at least every year.
