I recieved a 6 year(deferred) probation in 1991. I recieved a 10 year regular prob in 1992. In 1999 I recieved a 3 year tdc sentence for a probation violation. I started regeristing as a sex offender in 2000. The charges were indecency with a child by exposure. How long do I have to register for since I'm under the old law of 2000?

Alex J. Esq. :

Can you please let me know if you can see what I am typing?

Customer:

Yes. That was the law in 2000. Even for indecency with a child by exposure. I thought it was for only 10 year after porole or probation?

Alex J. Esq. :

Actually, in Texas it is a lifetime registration.

Alex J. Esq. :

You can also confirm this information with the local sheriff department.

Alex J. Esq. :

Texas has some of the toughest registration requirements for sex offenders.

Customer:

Not if it indecency with a child(no contact)

Alex J. Esq. :

What level sex offender are you?

Customer:

Should be violent. Not really sure. I've been regeristing for 13 years and have never been O

Customer:

I meant non violent.

Alex J. Esq. :

I will double check on this for you. Please give me a minute

Customer:

Ok thanks Alex. I really need to know for sure because I was told all these years that it was only 10 years and now all of a sudden they are telling me life. It can't be since I would fall under the old law. I am hoping.

Alex J. Esq. :

Thank you for waiting.

Alex J. Esq. :

I did check and it is lifetime, since the new law does apply retroactively and you would be subject to the new law requiring a lifetime registration.
