OCTO is aware of the global issue with CrowdStrike’s update impacting Windows servers and computers. CrowdStrike has identified the issue and a fix. We are supporting District agencies to ensure operations continue. At this time, District operations are not experiencing major impacts.

Definition of Offenses

Definitions of offenses may be found in the District of Columbia Code (DC Code), which is linked below. To view a printed version of the DC Official Code, visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Library at 9th and G Streets, NW, or contact them at (202) 727-1111. Versions of the DC Official Code are also available online via the links below.

Please note: Not all definitions listed in the DC Code will match the offenses described in a sex offender's conviction. This may occur because an individual was convicted in another state, or because the law under which an individual was convicted has been repealed.

In accordance with enactment of the Sex Offender Registration Act of 1999, this information is being provided to the community. Unlawful use of this information to threaten, intimidate, harass, or injure a registered sex offender is prohibited and will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
