Offenses that Require Sex Offender Registration

How Long Are Sex Offenders Required to Register?

In Minnesota, convicted sex offenders are required to register for a minimum of 10 years. However, if a person is sentenced to probation for longer than 10 years, they will be required to register for the duration of their probation. For individuals that have committed aggravated offenses, been convicted of repeat sex offenses, or been deemed “sexual predators,” lifetime registration will be required.

What are the Consequences of Failing to Register?

If you have been required to register as a sex offender, you should know that non-compliance could result in serious consequences. Each conviction for a failure to register violation will result in five additional years of sex offender registration. First-time convictions may also result in a one-year prison sentence. For subsequent convictions, you could face a minimum prison sentence of two years.

You could be charged with a failure to register offense if you:

  • Fail to initially register as a sex offender or submit the proper verification forms
  • Fail to report changes to your primary address, employment, school, or vehicles
  • Enter Minnesota to live, work, or attend school and fail to register with local authorities
  • Visit Minnesota for longer than 14 days and fail to register with local authorities
