I have a question concerning compliance checks. I am a RSO in Texas and every Halloween the local law enforcement shows up at my house to do a compliance check. I am no longer on any kind of court ordered supervision and I understand my rights as far as answering any questions they ask during a compliance check. Basically, I tell them that I am not going to answer any of their questions and that my registration is up to date. I do all of this from inside of my doorway, as I understand that I lose a lot of my rights when I step outside of my doorway.
My question is this: If they are JUST doing a compliance check and they do NOT have either a search warrant or arrest warrant, can they order me to step outside of my house during the compliance check? How should I handle this? Thanks...
