Does a conviction of unlawful sexual intercourse require registration as a sex offender?

Anyone who was on parole or probation or incarcerated for a sex offense on January 21, 1996, is required to register as a sex offender with the NY State Division of Criminal Justice Services (“DCJS”). Additionally, offenders who are convicted of a sex offense on or following that date, or receive a sentence of probation, jail or state prison following that date, are required to register upon their return to the community.

Among the sex crimes for which the perpetrator must register as a sex offender are rape in the third degree, rape in the second degree and rape in the first degree. Thus, a conviction of unlawful sexual intercourse requires registration as a sex offender.
