Is new sex offender bill’s “throw ‘em in jail” philosophy good policy?

Article provided by Ventura Criminal Defense Lawyer – Bamieh & Erickson PLC

Those convicted of sex crimes have long been a straw man for elected officials looking to bolster their political clout. Every time a politician wishes to appear “tough on crime,” one of the easiest avenues is pushing new sex offender legislation through the California House and Senate.

But, while new sex offender regulations may be popular with the public, they are not always good policy, often hampering the livelihoods of individuals who would have otherwise simply paid their debt to society and moved on to be productive citizens.

Good article. Unfortunately, it is not published anyplace where anyone will see it other than those who already know this. This article should be an op ed in all the major newspapers in the state. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
