Sex Crimes are defined in Louisiana by Revised Statute 15:541 and include over 25 crimes defined by various other statutes, explained in greater detail in the pages attached. Sex Crimes not only carry harsher sentences, require more of any imposed sentence to be served before an inmate becomes eligible for parole, but also require continued registry once released.
Registration as a sex offender is one of the most onerous obligations placed on convicted felons in our society after they are released from incarceration. There are logistical, administrative, and financial components to the registry process, and failure to register can land the person back in jail.
