Penalties for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender
California law requires that everyone who is required to register as a sex offender must update their information annually within five days of their birthday or a change of address. If you are under mandatory registration for a past sex crime conviction and you fail to register in California, you face the possibility of a probation violation. The penalties you may receive if you are convicted are up to one year in a county jail if your sex crime conviction was a misdemeanor or sixteen months up to three years in a California state prison if you were convicted of a felony.
Failure to register as a sex offender in California is known as a continuing offense. This means that each time you fail to register you are subject to the above penalties which could ultimately result in a long state prison term.
