My judge sentenced me to X years of registration. Shouldn’t that be all I have to do?

You aren’t going to like this answer: In most instances, your judge actually did not “sentence” you to a particular period of registration. He/she merely pointed out that the duty to register would be a consequence of your conviction. In most jurisdictions, a judge has no control over the duration of your registration. The Court merely advises that the conviction itself will trigger registration requirements at the time it imposes the sentence.
