AZ: NARSOL supports man who won rare constitutional challenge

[narsol.org 4/9/18]

y Larry Neely . . . The National Association for Rational Sexual Offense Laws (NARSOL) has filed an amicus curiae brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in support of Stephen Edward May, whose conviction for child molestation in an Arizona case has been set aside by the federal court in Arizona. NARSOL’s interest in May’s case rests on the Arizona statute defining the offense of child molestation to require the accused to prove that any contact with an underage child did not result from a sexual interest or motivation. The law, which was upheld by the Arizona Supreme Court in State v. Holle, 240 Ariz. 300, 379 P.3d 197 (2016), essentially requires an accused to prove that he is not guilty of the crime, rather than preserving the traditional presumption in American law that the individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

  1. American Detained in America

    Finally, someone acknowledges that there is a presumption of guilt and the burden of proof is actually on the accused…even if it is just for this one law. Most of us who have been in the system already know that as far as jail staff, courts, and lawyers, we who have been arrested are guilty and need to prove our innocence.

      Even proven innocent they will still keep ye locked up.

      You are so tragically right!!! I so wish you were wrong and I could go again and stick my head back into the sand… I am afraid not just for the USA but for the world at large. I understand perhaps it is human nature to need an escape goat to blame all the world’s wows on but doing so causes a ripple effect that lands it (or something worst) back on all our door-steps. Sex-bots (something worst) with AI..sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie. It’s not so far off… Such would reduce demand for prostitution, one night-stands (STDs) and sex trafficking. The results would be less need for male female interactions. birth rates go down (sort of doing that now) and we as humans end up on an endangered species list. These events are encouraged by the Sex offender registry and fear about having to pay child support for years and with such a demand easily met with sex-bots no worries about ever getting an kind of STDs. Some of you know me as a hairdresser but I have an engineering degree, worked in fabrication and dental technologies and currently advise one of the largest manufacturers of custom wigs for cancer patients. Yah, The advent of sex bots are very real. I am not just an advocate against the registry I see what technology is coming up with… The registry is a problem but it is more of a symptom of a bigger problem.
