Desiigner Will Not Have To Register As A Sex Offender



It was previously reported that Desiigner would also have to register as a sex offender for indecent exposure, but his attorney, Ryan Garry, tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement that those claims are untrue.

“Regarding the issue of Mr. Selby registering as a sex offender, many news outlets have incorrectly stated that he is required to register as an absolute condition of his probation. They are wrong,” Garry told PEOPLE of Desiigner.

“Since this was a federal misdemeanor, the sentencing judgement states that if the State of California or some other government entity requires that Mr. Selby must register as a sex offender, then he must,” the attorney continued.

“However, the parties in this case have come to the legal conclusion, after significant research and consultation with lawyers in California, that this misdemeanor conviction is not one that will cause Mr. Selby to have to register as a sex offender,” Garry added. “If some government agency in California disagrees with our analysis, then we will address the matter at that point in time.”
