Do you need to register as a Missouri sex offender?

If you have ever served time for a Missouri sex crime, you may wonder how much of an effect your conviction might have on your life moving forward. This depends, at least to some extent, on whether you must register with the state as a sex offender. Doing so can considerably limit your freedoms in your day-to-day life, and it also has the potential to affect everything from where you can live and work to with whom you can spend time. On the flip side, failing to register as a sex offender can have serious repercussions, too, so it is important to be able to determine whether it is a step you need to take.

Those groups range from law enforcement authorities to advocates for victims of crime.
