If you have been convicted of certain sex crimes in any state in the nation and you reside in Arizona, permanently or on a temporary basis, you must register with Arizona as a sex offender. If you don’t, you can be charged with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender (A.R.S. §13-3821 and §13-3824).
Even if you are not an Arizona resident and you are a student here for more than 14 consecutive days or employed in the state for 30 or more consecutive days and you have been convicted of certain felony sex crimes, you must register at the local sheriff’s office in the county in which you reside. Watch the video below to learn more details.
- Registering includes:
- Going to a local sheriff’s office in the county in which you live
- Informing office of new address and change in name if applicable
- Paying $250 initial registration fee
- Knowing that you will have to get a new driver’s license every year with new photo and updated information; payment of the $100 annual fee
- Informing old office and new office within 72 hours when and if you move
