In re B.G.M – Case Brief Summary (Texas)

In In re B.G.M., 929 S.W.2d 604 (Tex. App.-Texarkana 1996, no writ), the Court reviewed a different type of due process argument and held that a trial judge was not required to admonish a defendant about the requirements of the sexual offender registration program because it was remedial rather than punitive in nature.

The Court concluded that the requirement to register as a sex offender was not a direct consequence of a plea of guilty to the offense of sexual assault; thus, a lack of knowledge about the requirement did not render a plea of guilty involuntary.
