Being accused of committing a sex offense can instantly destroy your life – you could lose your family, your job, and your reputation instantly.
If you are convicted of a sex offense, you may be required to register as a sex offender for between fifteen years and life, depending on the crime. And being registered and classified as a sex offender carries devastating collateral consequences that can rob you of your livelihood.
There are several sex offenses under Ohio law, and some of them you would not expect to carry mandatory sex offender registration if convicted. You may be charged with misdemeanor voyeurism or sexual imposition in a municipal court. It does not seem logical for a misdemeanor conviction to destroy your life. But under Ohio law, if convicted of one of these misdemeanors, you will be required to register as a sex offender every year for a period of fifteen years.
