Most people facing criminal sex crime charges are probably aware that the consequences for a conviction can be serious. While most likely know that they could end up spending time in prison, other potential consequences could be less understood. In many cases residents of Missouri who are convicted of a sex crime could be forced to register as a sex offender. If found in violation of the terms of this registration, a convicted individual could find that he or she is once again behind bars. In the course of this check, one individual was deemed to not be in compliance.

Missouri criminal code could be updated

When someone in the state of Missouri is arrested and charged with a crime in a state court, that charge is based on the violation of a state law. Criminal laws in Missouri cover a wide range of topics and were last updated in 1979. If some Missouri lawmakers get their way however, the criminal code will be updated soon. A 1,100 page bill regarding the matter is currently being debated.
