Georgia Sex Offender Registry

Michael Kennedy McIntyre founded Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates in 1985 in Atlanta, Georgia. The firm’s sole focus is in the field of post-conviction representation. Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates assists offenders by reviewing their case and determining their available postconviction remedies. Michael Kennedy McIntyre & Associates also works with convicted sex offenders during their time in custody and after they have been released. In Georgia, offenders convicted on or after July 1, 1996, or released on or after July 1, 1996, of a dangerous sexual offense or of a criminal offense against a victim who is a minor are required to register with the Georgia Sex Offender Registry. Sex offenders convicted in the State of Georgia are required by law to register with the Georgia Sex Offender Registry. The registry contains personal information of offenders who have been convicted of a sexual offense. The personal information includes the offender’s full name, address, age, and the last date that the offender updated their registry information. The registry is updated every two months and the information is available to the public. The sex offender registry includes an updated map with dots marking where those who were convicted of sexual offenses live. All sex offenders planning to move to Georgia from elsewhere must register with the Georgia Sex Offender Registry. In 2010, the laws regarding the sex offender registry changed significantly and, since then, some offenders may become eligible for removal from the sex offender registry.
