A: Possibly. There are options, however, to remove your name removed from Florida sex offender registry:

Florida’s Romeo and Juliet Law:

(1) the victim was 13 to 17 years of age,

(2) you were no more than 4 years older than the victim,

(3) the conviction that triggered registration was for Sexual Battery, Lewd and Lascivious Conduct, Sexual Performance by a Child, or Computer Pornography,

(4) you don’t have any other convictions for the previously listed crimes, and

(5) the sexual act was consensual and does not conflict with federal law.

After 25 Years

Full Pardon

Out-of-State Designation of Sex Offender Removed
