Complying With And Challenging Sexual Offender Registration

Massachusetts requires that all those convicted of sex crimes register with the Sex Offender Registry Board. This is the state agency responsible for keeping a database of convicted sex offenders and classifying each offender's status. The level of classification will make a big difference in terms of your everyday personal freedoms.

It may be possible to change your sexual offender registration classification. Level 1 is the least public option. At the law office of Doran & Doran, P.C., attorney Frank Doran can help. He has 25 years of experience as a district attorney and a criminal defense lawyer. He can assist you in understanding sex offender registration requirements and what a sex offender status means for you. Put his experience to work in your case.

Sexual Offender Classification Levels

  • Level 1: If the board determines that the risk of offending again is low and the degree of dangerousness posed to the public by that offender is not such that a public safety interest is served by public availability of registration information, the board will give you a level 1 designation. Information about you will not be made available to the public.
  • Level 2: If the board determines that the risk of offending again is moderate and the degree of dangerousness posed to the public is such that a public safety interest is served by public availability of registration information, the board will give you a level 2 designation. The public will have access to information about you through the police department and through the Sex Offender Registry Board.
  • Level 3e: The board determines that the risk of offending again is high and the degree of dangerousness posed to the public is such that a substantial public safety interest is served by active dissemination, the board will give you a level 3 designation. The public will have access to the information about you through the police department and through the Sex Offender Registry Board.

Active dissemination of information means your photo will be posted in the post office, schools, on the Internet and in public places around the neighborhood.
