Don’t Forget to Register Under Penal Code 290.

By: Wallin & Klarich

Wapello_signIf you are an individual that must register under Penal Code 290, and have been taken into custody for more than 30 days, you must re-register when you get out of custody.

Under Penal Code section 290.015(a) a person who is subject to the Act shall register, or reregister if the person has previously registered, upon release from incarceration or release on probation pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 290.

Being in custody for even an unrelated reason for more than 30 days, will mandate that you reregister back at the residence that you are returning to, and you must re-register if you are returning to another location. The laws in this area are numerous and very complex.
