    You are a proclaimed offender.

    Hi teachers,

    You are a notified criminal.
    You are a proclaimed offender. Do they mean the same?

    Many thanks.

    I haven't heard of either one. A Google search returned many hits from India for "proclaimed offender". Perhaps this phrase is used in Indian English.

    Re: You are a proclaimed offender.

    A known offender.
    A convicted offender/criminal.
    A persistent offender.
    A prolific offender.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
