A broad range of sexual crimes will land someone on the sex offender registry in South Carolina. In addition to any form of sexual assault, peeping, kidnapping with intent to perform sexual offense, intercourse with a patient, sexual misconduct with a spouse and any form of sexual solicitation with a minor, whether or not any sexual act occurs, are all sufficient crimes to place the criminal on the South Carolina sex offense registry. The state maintains stringent registration laws: Registered offenders must notify the sheriff’s department of their home address and the addresses of any other owned property or place of school attendance. Registration must be renewed a minimum of twice a year; violent offenders must register every 90 days. Sex offenders guilty of sexual misconduct with children are placed under electronic monitoring surveillance. Failure to maintain registration or any attempt to manipulate a monitoring device will result in criminal charges, up to and including jail time.
