HAVE YOU BEEN ACCUSED OF:
Sex Offender Registration
Seek advice from a lawyer, before considering a guilty or any plea to a sexual offense, as you may unknowingly agree to sex offender registration. In most cases, a conviction on a sexual offense will lead to lifetime sex offender registration, which is publicly available information in hundreds of websites across the internet and government websites. A person only has to search for your name to view your sex offender status on the internet including what you were convicted of, your picture, your current address, and other pertinent details. A person can also search a zip code or a radius of their home to view sex offenders in the area.
Lawyers know that failing to update sex offender registration can result in fines and up to 10 years in prison, no matter what state you live in because of federal laws, and a sex offender may also face additional state penalties.

BEST LAWYERS FOR SEX OFFENDERS
Your sex crime and status as a sex offender will be a matter of public record for the rest of your life. Some states requires sex offenders have their “Sex Offender” status publicly viewable on all social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter amongst them. In other states, use of social media profiles is completely prohibited. Some states are also trying to get laws passed banning sex offenders from using the Internet altogether. Now more than ever, you need aggressively fighting lawyers for sex offenders and avoid any plea bargain that involves sex offender registration.
SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS & PENALTIES
Sex offender registration is bad in and of itself, but under the current political climate it is getting worse. By law, a sex offender registrant is required to register his or her name, current address including all personal information, with local law enforcement at all times. You may read a 2009 fifty state survey of Sex Offender Registration Requirements ; it is outdated as it does not include current legislation and rules. There also exists federalrequirements and penalties stated at sex offender registration. Most sex offenders must update their information, such as address, every 30 days. If a registrered sex offender is in violation of the update requirements s/he may be charged and convicted of more penalties.
Some states have passed laws requiring sex offenders to wear ankle monitors for the rest of their lives. Other states have propositioned laws requiring sex offenders to wear ankle bracelets. Some of the states requiring sex offenders that are high risk to be monitored through GPS ankle monitors are Florida, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, and California.

SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION CONSEQUENCES
This information to some degree can lawfully be posted anywhere on the internet by anyone. The effect of this is you become registered in the national sex offender registryand become a social outcast! There now exists even publications and magazines featuring sex offenders.
The nightmare doesn’t end there. If you leave your residence for any extended period of time, either on vacation or even a business trip, you may be required to notify your local police office as well as the office in your destination location.
To make matters even worse, certain states restrict where you can live. For example, sex offenders may not live within a certain distance from a school, park, bus stop, church, or other places where children are known to gather. Think about it. Most communities are designed to include schools, churches within easy transport access. This pretty much eliminates most existing communities and virtually all new communities. You will be left with very few desirable places to live!
SEX OFFENDER’S BOTTOM LINE: A LIFE AS AN OUTCAST!
By pleading to any sex crime, your life as a free person is over. Furthermore, the Supreme Court has generally upheld and supported all of the challenges to sex offender registration requirements!
These laws aren’t going away. In fact, they are getting worse.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:
Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.
I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!– L. W.
Best defense lawyers in the country.
I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.– V. J.
A great team of lawyers.
I do not have enough words to describe how incredible the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!– S. O.
She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.
My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.– C. D.
Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.
When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at Liberty Bell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.– S. B.
Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.
Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.– A. B.
