Gillette Sex Offender Registration Attorneys
A conviction for sexual assault or any type of sexual misconduct against a minor carries heavy penalties in Wyoming. And even after you have served your sentence, you will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.
Once you have been placed on the Wyoming sex offender registry, you will have to wait at least 10 years before you will be allowed to petition for removal. And people convicted of sexual crimes in other states are required to register right away when they come to Wyoming.
Placement on the sex offender registry causes intense embarrassment and social scrutiny, and anyone is able to access this information. And there are strict legal penalties for failing to register.
If you have been charged with any sort of sex crime in Wyoming, it’s crucial to contact an experienced Gillette criminal defense lawyer right away. Our team of skilled trial attorneys at Steven Titus & Associates, P.C. will aggressively defend your freedom and find the best strategy to get your charges reduced or dismissed.

Anyone arrested for a sexual offense after July 1, 1999 or sentenced after January 1, 1985 must register immediately after sentencing or before being released from custody.
When you move to a new area, you must register with the sheriff where you reside right away. People coming to Wyoming from another state are required to register with the local county within 3 days of entering the state.

Once you have been added to the registry, any member of the public can see your:
- Date and place of birth
- Crimes you were convicted of
- Physical characteristics

If you are facing charges of sexual assault or any type of sexual offense involving a minor, never speak to police officers without a Gillette sex crime defense attorney present. Police and district attorneys are extremely aggressive about prosecuting these crimes.

- Contact a Gillette criminal defense attorney.
- Avoid your alleged victim and any accusers.
- Make a list for your attorney of witnesses who can support your side of the story.
- Tell your attorney if your accuser has any hidden motives.
