Can I be charged sales tax from an online retailer if they don't operate in my state?

If the retailer has ANY nexus in your state, they must collect and render sales taxes for your state. A nexus can be anything, from a regular brick and mortar store to an office, warehouse, mail drop, etc.

the online retailer may be registered with your state to charge and collect sales tax

That depends on the laws of your particular state. There are several states that require online retailers to charge tax on any orders being shipped to customers in their state.

As long as they send the tax to your state, they can. If they don't, you are supposed to pay the tax yourself, although most people don't. States are beginning to find ways to catch those who don't.
