Sex offenders register

If someone is convicted of a sexual offence, their details will be held on the Sex Offenders Register. A person convicted of a relevant sexual offence (as detailed in Schedule 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003) automatically becomes subject to the Notification Requirements of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and becomes a Registered Sex Offender (RSO). A person convicted of an offence not listed in Schedule 3 can be made subject of the Notification Requirements of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and become a RSO if a Sheriff or Judge considers there to have been a significant sexual aspect to the commission of the crime.
