California judge’s ruling a partial victory for registered child sex offenders

Los Angeles (CNN) — Registered child sex offenders in Simi Valley, California, will not have to post a sign outside their home this Halloween reading in part “no candy,” but they still are prohibited from decorating their houses and handing out candy, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.

This is a partial and temporary victory for a group of the city’s sex offenders and their wives who sued the city claiming that a recently passed law was unconstitutional and sought a temporary injunction of the law before a full hearing next month. Full Article

I think this is a good first step but they still need to strike it all down for the people off probation and parole. It is double jepody

i agree it truly is double jeopardy if one has been punished already. Why should he be punished again?

A follow-up article that ran yesterday in the Ventura County Star speaks loud volume about the issues with this ordinance. Police were doing follow-ups on certain individuals and someone actually called and complained about a registrant’s residence having decorations. The registrant was off premises to be compliant with the ordinance. Meanwhile, the family had put up decorations and the police found themselves in the predicament of having to forward their evidence to the city attorney to find out if the law was in fact violated. Mayor Huber said he “makes no apologies” for introducing the ordinance. I beg to differ! He owes an apology to those registrants’ families… their mothers / wives / children, for ruining their Halloween with such a ridiculous ordinance.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
