Sex Offender Registration and Exclusion Forms

Application for Exclusion from Internet Disclosure

The California Sex Offender Registry is responsible for determining if any sex offender registrant who applies for exclusion from the Megan’s Law public web site qualifies for exclusion. Registrants whose only registrable sex offenses are for the following offenses may apply for exclusion: (1) felony sexual battery by restraint (Pen. Code § 243.4, subd. (a)); (2) misdemeanor child molestation (Pen. Code § 647.6), or former section 647(a); (3) any offense which did not involve penetration or oral copulation, the victim of which was a child, stepchild, grandchild, or sibling of the offender, and for which the offender successfully completed or is successfully completing probation; or 4) felony child pornography convictions (Pen. Code §§ 311.1, 311.2 subd. (b), (c) or (d), 311.3, 311.4, 311.10, or 311.11) if the victim was at least 16 years of age or older and that fact is documented in an official court document which you must submit to DOJ.

DOJ determines whether a person meets the requirements for exclusion, based on official court documents. Registered sex offenders who are granted exclusion from the Megan’s Law public web site must still register as sex offenders. Please note that it can take anywhere from 30 – 90 days or longer for DOJ to process your application. Access the application form.
