Required Registration On The Sex And Violent Offender Registry
The Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) maintains the Sex and Violent Offender Registry. Convictions for certain violent and sex crimes and any adjudication as a sex offender require a listing on the public registry. Even a minor may be required to register depending on the facts and circumstances of their conviction. Registration could potentially be required for life, depending on the particular case. Anyone can access the Sex and Violent Offender Registry, and any investigation for a housing or employment application will reveal your criminal record and registration on the statewide database.
