Will I be forced to register as a sex offender if convicted of statutory rape charges?

Anyone convicted of sexual assault charges involving a minor will be required to register as a sex offender in the state registry. This registry, and the laws surrounding it, can make life very difficult for a person. They may be forced to alert their community once convicted and if they move. Additionally, their residential information may be made public due to their place on the registry. In addition to public notifications, being on this registry can limit professional opportunities, especially for educators and certain types of physicians.
