KS: Kansas appealing in sex offender registry ruling

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas will appeal a state district court judge’s decision that orders a child molester’s name to be removed from its offender registry after finding the registration laws violate the U.S. Constitution, the state’s top prosecutor said Thursday.

At issue is Tuesday’s decision in which Shawnee County Judge Larry Hendricks found that Kansas law ostracizes offenders and requires them to remain registered longer than necessary. But, his ruling applied only to the 50-year-old Lenexa man who sued the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Johnson County sheriff’s office seeking to end his registration requirement. Full Article

Another state embarking upon another losing battle…the dam is finally starting to crack.

I can’t help but notice that alcoholics who drive while drunk escape Kansas registration laws which are meant to protect it’s children and the public.
Maybe they don’t represent the danger I imagine?
Or perhaps drunk drivers encompass too many law makers, politicians, district attorneys and other highly respected citizens.
If anyone deserves their history printed on a drivers license, they seem suited.

I’ve said that about drunk drivers for about 7 or 8 years, as well as drug dealers. Drug dealers hurt more people, affect more lives, and risk far more others than registered sex offenders.

I think you are seeing what you want to see when you say the dam is breaking. I would say that opinion is fine and dandy, no problem to hold — except that it tends also to lead to the wrong strategy and tactics and expectations in continuing the fight. If you think the powers that be are reasonable, you will not approach this fight with the right strategy. They are not at all interested in being reasonable or honest. And because of that mindset, the chances of this ruling being upheld all the way through SCOTUS is just about… Read more »

I think the analogy referred to cracks and not breaks. Maybe it is more accurate to say that the reservoir is not filling up as fast? Our esteem Chief Justice Roberts once said that registering as a sex offender is no more inconvenient that signing up for the Price Club. He said that as an argument before he got on the court, but it is clear that the sentiment permeates the court’s thinking about registration. The Price Club no longer exists, but I don’t recall that their membership featured homelessness and unemployment. In a way, though, I like the standard.… Read more »

Actually, the Price Club was purchased and became part of Costco, so they have a similar signup. By mentioning the Price Club, he simply showed how out of touch with the common man Chief Justice Roberts really is.

In my opinion the 290 laws in California are hideous and unconscionable at best. the problem is that we have full time legislators whom justifies their existence by passing laws which are absolutely punitive and post conviction consequences. Besides an inconvenience (justice Roberts), these laws violate each and every person(s) whom fall victim of this post punitive requirements. The California 290 laws are ridiculous and a violation the Fourteenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This is America , where are the second chances once an individual pays his or hers debt to society? Just like California prop 8 , the… Read more »
