GA: Sex offender argues mandatory ankle monitors are unconstitutional

As opposing attorneys argued the constitutionality of the Sex Offender Registry Review Board on Monday, several Georgia Supreme Court justices kept focusing on an aspect of the law that applies to the most dangerous predators: they must wear an ankle monitor for life but face no punishment if they don’t.

    “If a statute requires me to pay $1 that is mine, it’s still unconstitutional,” Justice Harold Melton said.

    That’s interesting.

    Maybe there is something behind the involuntary servitude argument that’s been brought up on here a lot…and maybe some judges would agree.

    I would like to see how they worded it in the original case to see how they argued and got the judge to come to that conclusion if someone can find it.

    “It looks like now we’ve gone to a system where we just want to collect some money” but offer no counseling that might help a sex offender, Justice Robert Benham said” WOW the truth that REALLY hurts. In Benham’s other words, it all about making money for some crooked company and not about protecting that child. A slap in the face on a icy cold morning with a wet branch, I would say.

    What is going on in this case denoted in the article:


    The case went to the Georgia Supreme Court after the state appealed a Fulton County Superior Court ruling that the sex-offender registry law was unconstitutional.

    Is Georgia the next to follow suit after Michigan? Can anyone give an update on this, please? Thanks in advance!
