Colorado Sex Offender Registration Requirements: More Important Info
Fact 3 – If you were convicted in another state of a sex crime, you may still have to register as a Colorado sex offender.
Interestingly, you do NOT have to be convicted of a sex crime within Colorado in order to be required to register as a Colorado sex offender. In fact, if you were convicted of a sex crime in another state and that conviction, had it occurred in Colorado, would require you to register, then you will be required, per Colorado law, to also have to register within Colorado if you:
- Permanently relocate to Colorado
- Will be visiting Colorado for more than 14 consecutive business days for an aggregate period of more than 30 days in a calendar year.
In these cases, people will typically have 5 business days from the date on which they’ve arrived in the state to fulfill their Colorado sex offender registration requirements.
Fact 4 – The information you provide when registering as a Colorado sex offender will usually become publicly available.
In particular, if you’ve had to register as a Colorado sex offender, then you will be required to submit the following information (to the presiding law enforcement agency in your area), and this info will be publicly available:
- Your full legal name
- Any aliases that you’ve ever gone by
- Your date of birth
- Your address(es)
- The sex offense(s) for which you were convicted.
Here, it’s also important to point out that:
- Information about sex crimes victims is NOT publicly available.
- People who have been ordered to fulfill Colorado sex offender registration requirements may be able to be removed from the registration in the future.
