Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.
Are you online with me?
Welcome to JustAnswer.com
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Under Texas law, someone in a situation similar to yours would be subject to a lifetime registration as a sex offender.
Do you have any related follow up questions for me?
Are you there?
Yes I am here
Were you able to read my answer?
Are you still there? I did not recieve a reply yet.
Can you see what I am typing?
Can you please let me know if you can see what I am typing?
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?
Actually, in Texas it is a lifetime registration.
You can also confirm this information with the local sheriff department.
Texas has some of the toughest registration requirements for sex offenders.
Not if it indecency with a child(no contact)
What level sex offender are you?
Should be violent. Not really sure. I've been regeristing for 13 years and have never been O
I meant non violent.
I will double check on this for you. Please give me a minute
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.
Thank you for waiting.
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.
I am sorry to bring you this tough news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even if the answer is not favorable to the customer.
