We want to provide all Oklahomans with up to date information about the laws affecting registrants. These laws in our state change year after year. We will update the information on this page to reflect these changes to provide any new laws or amendments to existing law. Please check back with us periodically to learn of any changes that may have taken place.
Oklahoma law is changed by legislative actions made at the capital from February to May of each year. We encourage you to contact your legislator to voice your concerns. If you would like to learn about who your legislator is and how to get connected with them, you can do so by visiting the Find My Legislator page on the Oklahoma legislature website.
The Oklahoma legislature website is a wealth of information and resources, such as tools for tracking bills, live video of floor hearings, and instruction on how to lobby state legislators. The House of Representatives information pages are a great place to start exploring this site. Visiting their Information Menu page may help you navigate.

OKLAHOMA SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS
The following is a summary of the Oklahoma Sex Offender Registration Act (OSORA) and other key laws affecting the majority of registrants. It includes the key points of registration laws in Oklahoma, but it is not an exhaustive list of all laws and restrictions affecting registrants in the state, as restrictions are included in many different portions of the Oklahoma legal code.
"In our view, the retroactive extensions of SORA registration clearly appear in the nature of retribution imposed against sex offenders for their past crimes."
