Whether you’ve been convicted on rape, sexual assault or child pornography, most people convicted of such crimes will need to register as a sex offender on the state sex offender registry. Failure to do so is a serious offense and may result in additional penalties.

If you have been accused of failing to register as a sex offender, retain an experienced Boston sex crimes defense lawyer at the Coughlin Law Group. Our criminal defense team includes a former prosecutor and skilled trial attorneys who are committed to protecting your rights.

Do you know the rules regarding alerting authorities about a change in address? Sometimes failing to inform authorities of your new location within the specified time can result in a failure to register charge. As our client, we will help you avoid these costly mistakes by explaining all of your obligations as a convicted sex offender.

Zealous Sex Crime Defense

From the prosecutor’s standpoint, there is no such thing as a good excuse for failing to register as a sex offender. We will provide the zealous defense you require.

We will examine the facts of your case and your reasoning for not registering. Depending on the facts of the case, we may be able to reach an agreement with the prosecutor that will avoid additional penalties if you register right away. If a favorable outcome cannot be negotiated, our extensive trial experience can give you an advantage as we zealously fight for your interests in court.
