State law makers and local police are looking to keep convicted sex offenders from online social networks such as MySpace and Facebook, where authorities said sexual predators now roam looking for victims. As minors continue to flock toward social sites such as MySpace and Facebook, so do sexual predators who are looking for victims, officials said. Just as minors are protected from convicted sex offenders in places such as schools and parks, they must too be protected from the cyber world where they socialize.
If you are a registered sex offender in Southern California, or if you are facing a charge that may carry with it the requirement that you register as sex offender, this development should concern you. California Penal Code Section 290 is the law that requires those convicted of certain enumerated offenses to register for LIFE as a sex offender. However there are things that can be done to terminate the requirement to register in California. One such method is to obtain what is called a Certificate of Rehabilitation.
Obtaining a Certificate of Rehabilitation is complicated process which should be undertaken with the guidance of an experienced Southern California criminal defense attorney.
