Understanding the Three-Tier System

California has adopted a three-tiered sex offender registration system. The length of time an individual is registered depends on the offense. Depending on the specifics of a case, the convicted person could be registered for 10 years, 20 years, or life; but most offenses no longer require lifetime registration

The tiers in the system include:

  • Tier one – 10 years as a registered sex offender for convictions of the lowest level offense, such as indecent exposure or misdemeanor sexual battery
  • Tier two – 20 years is required for mid-level offenses, such as lewdness or non-forced sodomy with a minor under the age of 14
  • Tier three – Lifetime registration is required for serious offenses, such as rape, sex crimes against children, repeated sex crimes, and sex trafficking of children

The best way to avoid these penalties is to avoid a conviction for a serious sex crime. If you are charged with a sex crime, it is essential that you contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
