Are sex offenders limited to where they can live in Texas?
If you are charged and convicted of a sex offense that requires registration as a sex offender, a lot of restrictions will immediately happen. They’ll affect where you can live, where you can socialize, and where you can travel. The traveling is a problem because if you travel and you’re away for a sufficient amount of time, you have to go to that particular police station and register. They’ll say you can’t live within a certain number of feet of a school and you can’t live within a certain number of feet of where children congregate. For that reason, we really try to avoid any offense where you have to register as a sex offender.
