How To Lower Sex Offender Classification Level
While there are a variety of factors involved, your sex offender classification level can be lowered, terminated or relieved with the help of an experienced Massachusetts sex offender reclassification attorney.
In order to adjust your classification in any way, you must petition to the Sex Offender Registry Board. You may be able to reinstate your hearing rights if there was an irregularity based on a procedural error or in the process by which you were classified. Only an experienced, thorough lawyer can help you determine if these elements were involved in your case.
There are two steps to the reclassification/termination process at the SORB. After your petition is filed, the SORB will review it and render a preliminary reclassification/termination recommendation. In many cases, attorney Frame’s clients have received the result they are seeking at this first stage, and a hearing is not necessary. If a client does not receive the results they want at the first stage, they can request a hearing. For numerous clients, Attorney Frame has won reclassification to a lower level and complete termination of registration obligations.
