||Sex Offender Registry Background
There are two categories of sex offenders in the Commonwealth of Virginia:
1) "VIOLENT SEX OFFENDER"
2) "SEX OFFENDER"
As provided by law, registrations available through the
Internet are for individuals convicted of a VIOLENT sex offense(s) ONLY. For a complete
listing of sex offenses which require registration in the "Sex Offender and Crimes
Against Minors Registry" click on the appropriate link to follow Individuals or
entities entitled by statute to obtain sex offender registry searches in the Sex Offender
category shall utilize Criminal History Record and/or Sex Offender Registry Name Search
Request form SP-230 or the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Name Search Request form
SP-266. These forms may be viewed, downloaded and/or printed by clicking on the PDF
button(s) that follow.
The data contained in sex offender registrations may be
primarily based upon information furnished by a convicted sex offender and not
substantiated by source criminal record documents such as: criminal arrest
fingerprint-based charge(s), court disposition(s) or a sentencing commitment court
order(s) to the Department of Corrections. Accordingly, the Virginia Department of State
Police cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information contained in the registrations.
Additionally, offenders may have changed their address of residence and failed to notify
the state or local police department within ten (10) days so their sex offender
registration may not be in a current status as statutorily mandated.
Sex offender registration and re-registrations are entered
into the Registry immediately upon receipt.
The Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry (SOR) for VIOLENT SEX OFFENDERS is
available via Internet pursuant to Section 19.2-390.1 , (D), of the Code of Virginia. Registry information provided under this
section shall be used for the purposes of the administration of criminal justice,
screening of current or prospective employees, volunteers or otherwise for the protection
of the public in general and children in particular. Unlawful use of the
information for purposes of intimidating or harassing another is prohibited and willful
violation shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor.
