Perhaps more so than with any other crimes, sex offenses carry permanent consequences. For better or worse, the United States and South Carolina has determined that those convicted of certain offenses be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of their lives. In South Carolina, even an offense as simple as Assault and Battery, 2nd Degree (a misdemeanor) can result in a lifetime of mandatory registration as a sex offender. Furthermore, some offenses, such as Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor in the First and Third Degree require a lifetime ankle monitor.
