New Bill in Congress: HR-2083 which contains a very ODD provision affecting more than sex offenders

9-29-2013 Washington DC: Continuing in our effort to review bills in Congress we find something really odd in HR-2083 `Protecting Students from Sexual and Violent Predators Act’ whose alleged purpose is to screen potential employees of schools, and to re-screen actual employees of schools every five years.

Before we get into our issue which revolves around ONE definition in this bill, here is the definition:

(2) SEXUAL PREDATOR- The term `sexual predator’ means a person 18 years of age or older who has been convicted of, or pled guilty to, a sexual offense against a minor.’  Full Article

I thought california law say’s two sex offences a person is deemed svp?

I THINK it’s two different conviction dates.

It depends on the offenses. I have two convictions, granted one was a bogus charge in which I was forced into a plea, but it is nonetheless two convictions. However, because of the nature of the charges and the fact they were not considered serious offenses(14 months in custody on 5 felonies), I am still labeled as Low-Moderate threat according to the last time my wife checked the Megan’s Law website.

I’m not too sure on the conviction times. I’m midway through a 5 year parole with two convictions at the same sentencing hearing. I am what parole deems a “high risk” low supervision. Many things were factored into that I believe. A low score on the static 99 is one of the factors. Compliance with conditions is another. I believe I read that there is, (or was) a significant difference between having one victim or more. (multiple) However, when I was sentenced, the amount of victims wasn’t discussed, only the amount of time to serve with the plea deal.
