Georgia Sex Offender Registry Release Lawyer
Ever since O.C.G.A. § 42-1-19 was enacted in 2010, Ben has been Georgia's premier Sex Offender Registry Removal Attorney. He has handled dozens of petitions for release from the registry. He has developed a formula for success, and some of the success stories are described below.
In re S.M.
S.M. was convicted after trial of child molestation based on allegations that he had exposed himself to a teenage girl. After his probation ended, Ben helped him get removed from the registry despite the prosecutor's opposition.
In re R.B.
R.B. was required to register based on a conviction for offenses that the Georgia Legislature later determined should be misdemeanors. Ben helped him get released from the registry in a very tough County.
In re A.W.
A.W. was also required to register based on a conviction for offenses that used to be felonies, but are now misdemeanors. He was removed from the registry with Ben's assistance.
In re A.T.
A.T. made a terrible mistake 15 years prior to hiring Ben when he inappropriately touched his step-daughter. Despite protestations from the State, the judge agreed with Ben that A.T. was an exceptional candidate for release from the registry.
In re D.S.
D.S. was very young when he was convicted of offenses stemming from the alleged date rape of a girlfriend. D.S. had gone on to make a very successful life for himself despite the hurdles of living on the registry. More than 10 years after his conviction and with a clean record since that time, Ben persuaded the judge to give him another chance.
In re L.Y.
L.Y. had a clean record with the exception of an incident 10 years earlier with his step-daughter. Since that time, he had been a model citizen and had gotten extensive and beneficial counseling. The judge agreed that L.Y. was not a threat and agreed to release him from the registry.
In re D.N.
D.N. was convicted of kidnapping and had to register even though there was nothing sexual at all about the offense. The judge readily agreed to remove his name and picture from the registry.
In re D.J.
D.J. made great efforts to change from the person he was years ago. With support from family, friends and the church he was rehabilitated and was not a threat to anyone. Despite some tough facts on the original case, Ben was able to help him get released from the registry.
In re C.G.
C.G. was convicted of communicating online with who he thought was a teenage girl, but who was actually a cop. Years later, he had been a model probationer, had gotten married and had gone through extensive therapy. The judge readily agreed that he should be removed from the registry.
In re B.T.
Convicted years ago of statutory rape after having sex with a girl who told him she was 18, B.T. was such a good candidate for registry removal that the prosecutor consented to his release.
In re A.C.
A.C. made one mistake in his entire life and because of it was unable to use the bachelors and masters degrees he had worked so hard to attain. The judge was impressed by his efforts to change and granted his petition for release.
