Misunderstanding of Sex Offender Probation Doesn't Invalidate Plea

Sex offender probation requirements are generally more extensive and rigid than the typical probation requirements for other criminal convictions. Rules regarding where the probationer may live and work and what activities a probationer may engage in are generally more restrictive. A sex offender probationer's access to the Internet may be prohibited or restricted. Failing to properly register as a sex offender can be both a new criminal offense and a probation violation. In the recent case of Privette v. State, M2011-02640-CCA-R3-PC (Tenn.Crim.App. 12-11-2012), an individual who had pled guilty to incest sought to vacate his guilty plea on the basis that neither the trial court nor his attorney properly advised him regarding the specific probationary requirements he would be subjected to as a result of the conviction.
