How to Terminate your Sex Offender Registration in Nevada

If you are registered as a sex offender in Nevada, whether for committing a sex offense or for committing a crime against a child, you may be eligible to terminate your registration as a sex offender, depending on the Tier of the offense. Some offenders may even qualify to terminate their duty to register as a sex offender prematurely. Once you terminate your registration as a sex offender, you no longer have to endure the stigma of being listed as a sex offender.

The time frame that an offender must register for varies depending on the level of the Tier of the offense:

  • Tier I:
    Offender must register for 15 years maximum
  • Tier II:
    Offender must register for 25 years maximum
  • Tier III:
    Offender must continue to register for life (as long as he or she lives, works, or goes to school in Nevada)

Other Nevada Sex Offender Termination Requirements

If you were convicted of a Tier I offense and have fulfilled 10 consecutive years of your duty to register, you may be eligible to petition the court to prematurely terminate the remainder of your registration period. To be eligible, you cannot have been convicted of a felony or a sexual offense during your registration period, and you must have completed an approved sex offender treatment program, and must have completed any periods of supervised release, probation, or parole. This option for registration reduction is also available to those sentenced to a Tier III offense by a juvenile court. The requirements are the same except for the waiting period. A Tier III juvenile offender must satiate a 25-year waiting period before he or she is eligible to petition for a registration reduction. If your petition is denied, you can reapply at any time.

Once the petition to terminate your requirement to register as a sex offender in Nevada is terminated, the judge will issue you an order releasing you from the requirement. It is advisable, however, that you check with the State and your sex offender caseworker to confirm the official date of your release so that you are not arrested for failure to register.
