Being labeled a sex offender in Georgia has dire consequences from the moment the sentence is imposed. Sex offenders face limitations while incarcerated regarding units in which they can be housed and programs in which they can participate. They have to complete special prison programs before being eligible for release on parole. Once released from confinement, they face arduous sex offender registration requirements and are restricted as to where they can live, work, and travel. Specifics regarding those matters as well as someone’s ability to petition to be removed from Georgia’s Sex Offender Registry are dependent on how the person is rated by the Sex Offender Registration Review Board.
