CA: California will soon end lifetime registration of some sex offenders under bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown

[L.A. Times]

Thousands of Californians will be allowed to take their names off the state’s registry of sex offenders as a result of action Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Brown signed legislation that, when it takes effect Jan. 1, will end lifetime listings for lower-level offenders judged to be at little risk of committing new crimes.

The measure was introduced at the request of Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey and other law enforcement officials who said the registry, which has grown to more than 105,000 names, is less useful to detectives investigating new sex crimes because it is so bulky.

“California’s sex offender registry is broken, which undermines public safety,” said Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), who introduced the bill. “SB 384 refocuses the sex offender registry on high-risk offenders and treats low-level offenders more fairly.”

      Yeah Jim, all these articles are put out to reach the Deadlines of their Pub. NOT ONE have we read that is FULLY Correct to date. I know he just signed it and beat the 15 of Oct. deadliine, but, GET THEIR FACTS STRAIGHT, right? Prob. not even effect until BDay 2022 according to conf. calls??? Correct me Someone.
      One paper even stated kids under 10 not 14 as it is written. Atleast it is a start. Won’t help my husband,
      after 33 yrs. you’d think most people have been punished enough! And that’s post Parole. I know the many that are on here including the one that called AlCo’s DA office and he was 80’s wanting to get off it.
      We will see what REALLY HAPPENS and HOW MANY will be denied or allowed, depending on DA an Judge!!
