The California Supreme Court is expected to consider soon the important case of People v. Mosley. That case focuses upon whether the imposition of a lifetime sex offender registration, which includes residency restrictions that prohibit registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of any public or private school or park where children regularly gather increase the penalty for the original offense for which the registrant was convicted. The opening brief on the merits of this case was filed on April 11, 2011, and the reply brief was filed on October 8, 2011. No date has yet been set for the court’s consideration of this important case which could either eliminate or continue residency restrictions in the State of California.
