Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I have questions about Sex Offender Laws in North Carolina. Need a lawyer in NC that knows those laws very well.
First, I am a registered sex offender in Texas. Off probation for over a year now. probation ended Feb 18, 2012 (10 years.)
I understand I am to register with the County Sheriff in NC, not the city?
I was under deferred adjudication for aggravated sexual assault of a child by age.
Does this mean I and my wife cannot have the grandkids over to stay once we move there?
(Note I am willing to pay upwards of $120 for answer that are accurate)
I have more..
The county sheriff stated we could not stay with my wife's Mom due to a couple of home based daycares. Is this correct?
I run my own business - from my home (once we have one in NC) doing independent contractor IT work for vaious companies. Is there anything unique to NC I should know?
From what I saw, there seems to be a lot of dates, of before such-and-such, then some things do not apply. I was placed on deffered adjudication on Feb 18, 2002. My offense date was Feb 13, 2001. How does that maybe play into registration and such?
Here in Texas I am set for lifetime regitration. The way we read is either I have to register in NC for 30 years, or I can even petition for a release from regitsration after 10 years at same home in same county in NC?
Sorry for so many questions, but I am a sex offender that actually wants to do right and not "screw up" in any way.

I need to ask for you to help me understand. So we cannot keep the grandkids at all... Like not even two or three hours while their Mom does an errand or such? Also, with that said, it is ok for the grandkids to be over with their Mom correct?
Also, some more info to help you..
The offense was against my 11yr old daughter. I also have a son, whom was 9 at the time.
The court allowed, once classes were completed, for my wife to be a court approved chaperone. Does this have any bearing in NC?
I passed all of my required, every 6 months, polygraphs and completed 9.5 yrs of court ordered therapy. Do these have any bearing on matters in NC?
Also, and this is more of a general question, when I was on probation, I had restrictions about parks, beaches, museums, etc. Now, from everyone I have talked to and those during my probation; I do not have such in effect here in Texas. But, I seem to find that NC laws pretty much have me on restrictions as if I was still on probation... True?
I am not one of those sex offenders that feels like I am a victim or such. I did wrong and I know it. I know I must obey and follow rules, so I want to get all of this right.
Also, in regards XXXXX XXXXX If I get a service call for a residential client. Is it ok to carry out the call in their home?
God bless and thanks again.
Would the motion require a lawyer? How long and complicated is such? How much money does such usually cost? Would we do such in NC or file from here in Texas - we are hoping to move out that away at first of Aug.
During the time I file and wait for the court to decide, would I be allowed to see them with either my wife or their mother with them?
Also, how much, if any, would a letter from my ex-probation officer help in any way with matters?
Finally, how do I pay you more for this question. I want you to know how much we appreciate your help.
Only final question I can think of, is in regards to residence:
When we move out there, we will need to stay in a hotel or motel until we find a place not within 1000' of "children places". Is this ok under NC law that a sex offender have a motel or hotel for a registered address?
What about any quarks, like no swimming pool in the place/
God bless and thank you!!
