Failure to Register Issues
There was a time not long ago when little attention was given to people who failed to register properly. That time has passed. Police agencies now have special units devoted to prosecuting registrants who either fail to register or improperly register. Often there are task forces that are federally funded to find and prosecute people who are not properly registered.
In most cases a registration offense is extremely serious because the prosecutor will allege prior strikes. Situations involving even minor violations can be used to obtain lengthy prison terms. Recent statistics indicated that nearly 20% of California registrants are in violation of registration laws.
