In addition to your permanent address you must also report any temporary address. This leads to the question what is a temporary address?
Many offenders are on probation and won't yet get into this issue. Most offenders on probation have a curfew meaning they must be home every night, giving them no option to accumulate a temporary address. An exception to this may include temporary permission to be at a different location. Some offenders however either have completed probation, or for whatever reason never had it. Either way if you spend even one night at a location other than your permanent residence you need to be familiar with rules regarding temporary addresses.
"Temporary residence" means a place where I abide, lodge, or reside, including, but not limited to, vacation, business, or personal travel destinations in or out of this state, for a period of 5 or more days in the aggregate during any calendar year and which is not my permanent address or, if my permanent residence is not in this state, a place where I am employed, practice a vocation, or am enrolled as a student for any period of time in this state.
Aggregate does not mean consecutive, so if you spend one night anywhere other than your permaent residence, you are residing at another location for one day in the calendar year. Once those days accumlate to five or more within a calendar year, you've hit the requirement to register it as a temporary address.
How will they know? They probably won't, but that's not the point. First of all you shouldn't be worried about concealing any information. The entire purpose of registration requirements is to honestly and accurately supply the required information. Secondly detectives are assigned to follow up on checking you are in complience. Regular checks that offenders are at the location they report are conducted. It may not be that often, but you never know what day they will be checking out your situation. If you happen to be gone on the day they check, that's when an investigation could begin. If you aren't home when they check there's no problem but the check will remain pending until your location has been verified and one of their questions may be if you weren't home then where were you? If it's determined that you were at another location they could verify that the place you were at is registered as a temporary address.
Vehicles must be registered. Obvisouly this is in addition to any DMV registrations. Not only are you required to register your own vehicles, but effective 10/1/2014 you are also required to register other vehicles listed at the same address. This could include the vehlcle of a guest who stays at the residence a total of five or more days. More often it includes a roommates vehicle.
Why does an offender have to register a vehicle not owned or driven by themselves? This has stirred up a huge and contreversial issue but is defined as follows. The term also includes any motor vehicle as defined in s. 320.01, which is registered, co-registered, leased, titled, or rented by a person or persons residing at my permanent residence for 5 or more consecutive days.
The reasons for accumulating information on vehicles that are not actually owned by an offender remain unlear. More likely than not, it's because of the liklihood that the offender may very well be a passenger in these vehicles, meaning that having these vehicles listed on file as well may very well track down an offender even if they are in full complience. It's not a very well thought out policy because the offender is just as likely to sometimes be in the vehicle of a neighbor that isn't listed at the same address. The point is not to debate their insane logic, it's to inform what their policy is. A roomate's vehichle affects another roommat'es registration requirements.
Some offenders under supervision are restricted from using the interent. However, for those offenders that do not have those restrictions or for those that aren't on any supervision, it is perfectly allowable to use email, so long as the email address is registered.
This is the one and only piece of registration that may be done on line rather than in person.
Here is a link to the FDLE Cyber Communication System, where offenders can register their emails and social accounts on line.
Information regarding logins are provided at initial registrations. Nonetheless many offenders don't have the information. If you do not know your user ID or password, you may call 888-357-7332.
