The failure to comply with the specific registration requirements has consequences. 

The Michigan Sex Offenders Registration Act requires individuals convicted of sex crimes to report their current contact information to the Michigan Public Sex Offender Registry. Offenders convicted of felonies must register every 3 months & those convicted of misdemeanor offenses must register yearly. 

Failure to Update Sex Offender Registration Information is considered a felony, and can be found under MCL 28.729.
