Illinois Sex Offender Law – Who is Required to Register

Puryear Law » Legal Blog » Illinois Criminal Law » Illinois Sex Offender Law – Who is Required to Register

The Illinois law concerning sex offender registration is one of the more complex ones in the country.  Illinois also imposes serious penalties for those who are convicted of failure to register.  For that reason, any person who believes they may be required to register as a sex offender is well advised to seek an attorney and ensure that the matter is properly addressed.

        The registering agency shall establish procedures to
    
document the receipt and remittance of the $100 initial registration fee and $100 annual renewal fee.

Important Reminder about Sex Offender registration

Note: Laws change regularly, and are complex. Failing to register when required can result in serious criminal charges and other consequences. For that reason, a person who believes they may be required to register as a sex offender should discuss the matter with an attorney, and not rely upon this or any other website to decide whether to register.
