State Police from Alpena are reminding sex offenders convicted of felony offenses that the 15-day quarterly address verification period begins next Wednesday April 1.

State law requires these offenders to report in person to their local law enforcement agency to verify their address.  Felony sex offenders who do not register quarterly could spend 93 days to 4 years in prison.

Those convicted of misdemeanor sex offenses must register with their local police agency yearly, between January 1 and January 15.

All sex offenders must report a change of address within 10 days of moving or face a 4-year felony.
