Two (2) recent Oklahoma Court Decisions may alter or remove your obligation to register as a sex offender.

On October 28, 2010, the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals issued a unanimous opinion that amends the Sex Offender Registration Act, which became effective after an individual’s plea agreement that was not applicable to that individual. On February 14, 2011, the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals also ruled in favor of Sex Offenders.

Both Courts held that “The amendments (changes) to the statutes are substantive. The amendments do not simply alter or clarify the procedure or method of registration. If the amendments were given retroactive effect they would create an obligation that Appellee register. As retroactive application of the amended statutes would alter Appellee’s obligations, the amendments are substantive and, without a clear expression from the Legislature that the amendments were to be given retroactive effect, must only be applied prospectively”.

This means that, if the amendments (changes) to the Sex Offender Registration Laws passed since 1999 have created new obligations or requirements that were not in effect or part of your original plea agreement or sentence, you are eligible for relief including removal from the registry. No longer is the fight about arbitrary artificial levels that have been created by the Department of Corrections. We now have the law on your side to restore your rights.

We were among the first attorneys in Oklahoma to successfully challenge the new sex offender registration laws. Time and time again our law office has forced the Oklahoma Department of Corrections to remove or lower the classification level of individuals throughout the state. We have the knowledge, experience and willingness to protect your rights.

If you would like to discuss your eligibility for complete removal from the registry, please call (405) 455-1411 or email us today at for a free consultation. The only thing you have to lose is the burden of unnecessary Sex Offender Registration obligations for the rest of your life.

We previously mailed letters about this change in the law and many individuals wanted help but we were not making payment plans. We now are offering payment plans. Time is critical. Act now!
