Wilmington Sex Offender Registration Lawyer
For many people convicted of sex crimes, sex offender registration is worse than the actual sentence. Jail at least has a beginning and an end, but sex offender status can haunt you for a long time. You are labeled as a deviant or a predator, and every facet of your life will be monitored and restricted.
As a Wilmington sex offender registration lawyer , I make a concerted effort to (a) keep clients off of the Delaware Sex Offender Registry or (b) keep them on a less onerous tier. My thorough and proactive approach, backed by more than 30 years of criminal law experience, may be the key to salvaging your future. Contact me, Michael Modica, to discuss the allegations you are facing and how we can mitigate the consequences.
Sexual Offender Status
Most sex crime convictions result in mandatory sex offender registration. Your name, picture and the offense will be listed on a state website. Failure to keep state and local authorities notified of your residence and employment can result in new criminal charges.
Sex offender status is fatal to many careers, and makes it very difficult to obtain employment or housing. Registered offenders cannot live near schools or day care centers, cannot coach or teach, cannot work in a hospital, et cetera. Depending on the nature of the crime and your sex offender tier, community notification may be required every time you relocate to a new town or neighborhood.
Registration is pervasive and suffocating, all in the name of protecting the community. My role is to prove that, despite the conviction, you are not a predator or dangerous person. I have had good results with independent psychological evaluations that demonstrate my client presents no threat to children or the community and is not a risk to re-offend. I am also able to help clients on the lowest tier petition for removal from the sex offender registry.
Contact Me At The First Hint Of Trouble
It is nearly impossible to reduce your sex offender level once convicted and sentenced. But when I am hired as an attorney early in the case, I can do more to avoid sex offender registration or influence your tier placement.
