How To Remove Your Name From The California Sexual Offender Registry

Anyone convicted of a sex crime in California must be permanently registered under the California Sex Offender Registration Act, generally known as California Penal Code section 290. The need to register increases the risk of social humiliation, missed opportunities, and even harassment.

Expunging and decreasing your record will not remove you from the sex offender registry, but CA Penal Code §290 allows two alternatives to avoid registration. Get a California Certificate of Rehabilitation by January 1, 2021, to cancel your registration. After January 1, 2021, Senate Bill 384, the Sex Offender Registration Act, will classify offenders into tiers and allow separate tiers to terminate after a specified number of years. Certificates of Rehabilitation will no longer erase the registration obligation after SB 384. Thus, people who cannot terminate their SB 384 mandate have a narrow opportunity to do so before January 1, 2021.

California's Tiered Sex Offender Registration & Removal from the Registry

California will now be providing relief from lifetime sex offense registration starting on July 1, 2021. Instead of mandatory lifetime sex offense registration for all registerable sex offenses, without any possibility of removing the registration requirement, California will be providing an avenue for a judge to remove the registration requirement for certain sex offenses. There will now be three levels of sex offenses, which will correspond to different requirements for removal from sex registration.

3 Tiers of Sex Offenses

On October 6, 2017, California State Senate Bill 384 [SB 384] was signed into law. However, the effective date for petitioning for relief was set for July 1, 2021. SB 384, created a new tiered sex offender registration system. This tiered system created three different tiers. The different tiers are based upon the seriousness of the crime that was committed.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
