If you have been convicted of a sex offense against a child, which includes Sexual Exploitation of a Minor (Possession of Child Porn), then you must abide by the Utah Group A Sex Offender Conditions. These conditions severely restrict a defendant’s life. These conditions may interfere with your adult dating life. For example, you can not date an adult man or woman who has children under the age of 18 without prior written approval of your parole officer (Condition 5). So before you go on that date you must get written approval from your parole officer. And don’t forget that on that date you must be home before curfew.

What if you want to attend your child’s school Christmas play? You must get prior written approval from your parole officer.

If you are subject to Group A Sex Offender Conditions your employment and your residence must also be approved.

The Utah Sex Offender Conditions are strict and this is another reason it is critical when charged with sodomy on a child, rape of a child or Sexual Exploitation of a child that you hire a talented, experienced and aggressive Utah criminal defense attorney.
