Answer: Adult sex offenders are required to register for either ten years or the rest of their lives, whichever the court decides is necessary given the offender’s criminal history and the nature of the offense. Lifetime registration with the Texas sex offender registration program is required after any offense deemed "sexually violent" by law. This includes continuous sexual abuse of a child, aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, possession of child pornography and compelling prostitution of a minor.
Juvenile offenders younger than 17 years old will remain on the registry until the tenth anniversary of their release from state supervision.
