Information on Sex Offender Registration in Kansas
Sex offender registration is in many ways more punishing to people convicted of a sex crime than the actual time they are sentenced to serve in prison. And even though sex offender registry requirements are already severe, they are only going to grow more so with each passing year. Because of this, ANY allegations of sexual assault, child molestation, or other sex-related crime that could subject you to sex offender registration demand an experienced and proactive defense of your rights.

At The Swain Law Office, we believe that all persons accused of a crime deserve to have a dedicated attorney who will represent them and fight to defend their rights. Our practice centrally focuses on representation of clients charged with any type of sex-related offense in the Kansas City metropolitan area and anywhere else in the state of Kansas.
If you are convicted of a sex crime, Kansas law currently requires a MINIMUM of seven years registration with local authorities everywhere you live or visit. As part of your parole or probation, you may also be required to wear a GPS tracking device so that authorities can monitor your whereabouts electronically 24 hours a day. In fact, things have gotten so bad that some Kansas legislators are now seeking to push a bill through that would put BRIGHT green license plates on the vehicles of all convicted sex offenders. Lastly, in addition to social consequences and the possibility of threats against you, there is also the penalty you are likely to pay every time you disclose your sex offender status on a job application.
Our lawyers will work hard to defend you and to help you avoid sex offender status. Likewise, if you are already a sex offender who is on parole and have mistakenly failed to fulfill the terms of your release, there may still be something we can do to help.
