Tucson Attorney Richard C. Bock Helps Keep You off the Arizona Sex Offender Registry
The Law Offices of Richard C. Bock is well-acquainted with Arizona sexual offender legislation
The sexual offender registry is a system that allows the government, and to some extent the public, to keep track of the residency and activities of sex offenders. In accordance with Megan’s Law, the Arizona Department of Public Safety maintains the Arizona Sex Offender Registry. Registration is triggered upon the offender’s release from custody and the community notification level is assessed. Law enforcement agents have discretion over community notification for Level 1 (low risk) offenders, whereas Level 2 (intermediate risk) and Level 3 (high risk) offenders have mandatory community notification requirements. Richard C. Bock fights to get you the lowest risk assessment possible to protect your liberty and privacy.
