California law requires persons convicted of specified misdemeanor and felony sex and arson offenses to register for the rest of their lives with their local police department. Sex registrants must register annually within 5 days of their birthday and within 10 days of arriving in a local law enforcement jurisdiction. In addition, the registrant must, within 10 days, inform the law enforcement agency where he or she was previously registered of their new address. Arson registrants must register within thirty days of entering a law enforcement agency’s jurisdiction or changing their address.
