Virginia Sex Offender Registry—Get Regular Safety Reports From DoNotPay
Virginia is in 29th place by the number of sex offenders per 100,000 people, so it’s not one of the top sex offender residences. You cannot know how many of them live in your area without consulting the Virginia Sex Offender Registry.
The problem is that other obligations will easily squeeze out the seemingly non-urgent scans of the state’s sex offender registry from your busy schedule.
Fortunately, you can subscribe to DoNotPay and receive regular notifications on the registered sex offenders moving into your area.
Virginia Sex Offender Registry can be searched by:
- ZIP code
- A perimeter around an address
- One mile
- Five miles
- Ten miles
- First name, last name, or an alias
- School they currently attend
You can conduct the search manually, or you can set email alerts for new or repeated registrations.
The search results for any query within the Virginia Sex Offender Registry will give you the following data on the registrants:
- Full name
- Home, work, and school address
- ZIP code
Some of the details may be missing since all updates depend on institutions other than the police, as well as the offenders themselves.
Beware that this data changes quickly, so you need to always be on the lookout. Email alerts may automate this process to a degree. Their flaw is that you can use only your ZIP code as the parameter for your alert.
Another downside of Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry system is that you cannot get a visual representation. Some states offer a map search of the registered offenders, but Virginia’s registry doesn’t.
Virginia Sex Offender Registry holds information on all convicted offenders (Tier I, Tier II, and Tier III). This includes the perpetrators found not guilty by reason of insanity as well as juvenile offenders.
According to the law, all sex offenders need to report to the local law enforcement authority for registration after their release from prison.
Besides the information available to the public through the Virginia Sex Offender Registry, they must also submit:
- Vehicle registration information
- Email address
- Instant messaging and chat names
- All other identities used for internet communication
After the initial registration, they will have to verify their personal details with the law enforcement regularly.
|Tier||Registration and Verification Periods|
|Tier I and Tier II||Report to the authorities once a year|
|Tier III||Report to the authorities every 90 days|
|All tiers||Report :
Sex offenders are required to respect many prohibitions depending on the local legislation and their crimes.
Virginia-based offenders can travel to other states, but they will need to report to the local authorities once they arrive at their destination.
If an offender fails to register or verify their information on time, they can be penalized in the following way:
- Tier I offender—12 months in prison
- Tier II offender—one to five years in prison
- Tier III offender—ten years in prison
Vicious sexual predators can live anywhere in the State of Virginia, and children are the most vulnerable. You need to know the background and read the behavior of people who come in contact with your kids to prevent them from falling victim to a pedophile.
Megan’s Law made a pivotal change in the USA by allowing all citizens access to the state sex offender registries.
