How would my new state find out my previous registry status?

The new state could find out about your previous conviction any number of ways:

  • An officer could run a criminal history at a routine traffic stop;
  • You could apply for something from the government such as a driver’s license or Social Security; or
  • A person from your old state who knows your conviction could notify the new state in order to cause trouble.
