Sex Offender Registry

The Ponca City Sex Offender Registry, maintained by the Ponca City Police Department, provides public information on sex offenders required to register pursuant to the Sex Offenders Registration Act, 57 O.S. 581-590.  The Act applies to any person residing, working or attending school within the state who has been convicted or received any probationary term for a sex crime in the state after November 1, 1989, or has entered the state after November 1, 1989, having previously been convicted or received any probationary term for a sex crime.  State law designates certain sex offenders as habitual (two or more sex crime convictions) or aggravated (convicted of the most serious kinds of sex offenses) and these offenders are flagged accordingly on this site.  Habitual, aggravated and Level 3 offenders are required to register for their lifetime.  Level 1 offenders are required to register for 15 years following expiration of their sentence.  Level 2 offenders are required to register for 25 years following expiration of their sentence.  For offenders who have a conviction in another jurisdiction, the registration requirement is 15 years for Level 1 offenders and 25 years for Level 2 offenders from initial registration date in Oklahoma.

 

Failure to register and comply with the Act is a felony offense punishable by up to five years in prison.  The Ponca City Sex Offender Registry provides information to the public and law enforcement in the interest of public safety.  The primary purpose of providing this information is to make the information easily available and accessible.  In Oklahoma sex offenders are required to register with the Department of Corrections and with their local law enforcement agency.
