Is a Sex Offense a Felony?

Sex Offender Registration in San Antonio
A conviction for a sex crime can have a devastating impact on your future. Just as with any other crime, you can end up being fined, imprisoned, and placed on a lengthy term of probation. In addition to these punishments, you will most likely be subjected to a requirement to register as a sex offender. Upon your release from prison, you will be required to register with local law enforcement in San Antonio or wherever else you live, and the information you provide will be posted to a publicly searchable online database maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
As a result, members of the community will be able to view your profile to find information including several photographs of you, a detailed physical description, your home and work address, and details concerning the nature of your conviction and the age and gender of the victim. In the event that you are convicted of an aggravated sex crime, the local law enforcement agency may even actively notify the public by mailing a postcard with your information to every home and business in the community.
