NE: Class action lawsuit filed on behalf of juveniles placed on sex offender list

The attorney who successfully sued to keep a 15-year-old boy’s name off the state’s Sex Offender Registry now is seeking to file a class-action lawsuit for those who the Nebraska State Patrol did list.

Attorney Joshua Weir said it ruined the lives of the seven — listed only as Johnny Doe I through VII — and dozens of others. Full Article

    But wait… The Supreme Court says it is NOT punishment. How could it possibly have ruined their lives????

    Good Job! Let see the Sex Offender Registry fall apart!

    I’ll never, ever understand how the law can talk out of both sides of its mouth. It’ll prosecute anyone over 18 for any illicit activity with anyone under 18 because that person is too young and vulnerable to make adult decisions, but then has no problem prosecuting those same minors like adults. Because apparently you’re never to young to be punished, only on making decisions. Like, teens and preteens being prosecuted for nude selfies as if they’re both the “victim” and “perpetrator” in one. I can somewhat see the corrupt motivation of the DA to do something like this (anything in the name of padding that resume full of victories!), but to also have the judges go along with it? It’s insane!

    I was also always curious how sex crime laws apply to those teens who were emancipated? Is there a legal clause that makes an exception for this or is that teen no legally allowed to date outside of their age group because they’re too young while completely and legally living on their own due to the courts stating they’re in fact mature enough to do so? I’m going to guess that they have to be careful in how they straddle both worlds.

    WE have to many double standards. A teen at 17 can join the Army and die for his/her country but can’t have a beer. A 14 year old can not legally go into any form of contract but if they kill someone or have sex or do sexting they are held accountable. To argue maturity is something else in today’s world because a 14 year old in today’s information age is more self-aware than say when my Grandmother who was married by 16 with two children.
