Re: Sex Offender Moving Abroad
It's an interesting legal question. Maybe you'd like to find out if the jurisdiction of the Adam Walsh Child Protection Act's duty to report extends beyond the territorial borders of the US. Certainly, the Act doesn't purport to end your duty when you leave the country.
I am only required to "notify" them, and thats exactly would I would do, give them my new address abroad , and that should be it. I should not have to report to them any further as I would not be living in the usa anymore, correct?
So go ahead. Leave the country, and stop reporting your whereabouts. An arrest warrant will be issued for felony violation of the Adam Walsh Act's reporting requirement. After you're extradited, you and your attorney can make a compelling argument for why your duty to report should have ended when you left the country.
I have to be honest. I don't have a legal answer for whether the federal or state government will let you leave the country. All I have is a vague sense that nobody is going to object to a sex offender leaving. But I'm not at all convinced, regardless of your marital status, that a country is going to be very excited about letting a sex offender enter.
