Which sex crimes lead to the sex offender registry in Oregon?

There are many serious crimes in Oregon. Of these crimes, sex crimes have some of the most severe consequences. This is because sex crimes can result in an individual being placed on the sex offender registry. When a person is placed on the sex offender registry, that person can see serious restrictions on the person's rights. An individual on the sex offender registry may not be able to work certain jobs, live in certain places or visit certain public spaces. The individual might also be subject to monitoring by local authorities.

Therefore, individuals need to understand which crimes can result in this penalty. According to Oregon State Police, there are many sex crimes that can result in sex offender registration. Understanding and knowing these crimes can help people avoid this penalty.

Rape, for example is one of the crimes that can lead to sex offender registration. Additionally, unlawful sexual penetration in any degree, sodomy in any degree and sexual abuse in any degree can also result in sex offender registration.

Often, crimes involving child victims will lead to sex offender registration. These include incest with the child victim, sexually explicit content with a child on display, encouraging child sexual abuse or transporting child pornography.

Other charges that can result in sex offender registration include sexual assault of an animal, promoting or compelling prostitution, certain trafficking and certain online conduct.

If an individual in Oregon is charged with any of these crimes, that person must take the charges seriously. Often, these felony charges can result in a variety of serious penalties in addition to sex offender registration. These penalties can include jail or prison time. With the help of an attorney, individuals can seek specific legal advice on how to combat these charges.
