Ruling may have vast effect on sex-offender registry, attorney says

Appeals court decision involving an Orange County case could impact thousands seeking to have their names removed from the ‘Megan’s Law’ list.

SANTA ANA – A court ruling involving an Orange County case could result in hearings for thousands of California sex offenders seeking to have their names removed from the “Megan’s Law” registry, says an attorney who represents a sex offender.

California’s 4th District Court of Appeal found unconstitutional a state law that allows some sex offenders to have hearings for certificates of rehabilitation while denying that right to others. Full Article

    I think I’ll believe it when I see it.. I’m going to keep an eye on this and maybe I’ll apply and see what happens

    So did Tirey get a second hearing date yet or did he automatically receive Certificate of Rehabilitation and get removed from the Megan’s Law List ?

    • Joe

      No one AUTOMATICALLY receives a Certificate of Rehabilitation. At least no one required to register. 10 years or 50 – yes, there are those people. The comments on the CoR page on this site are quite interesting. Or ask the guy in this article who has been shot down twice so far.

      • Robert Curtis

        I am the guy that got shot down twice. I had all the right points covered had letters of support from many honorable citizens and have received many awards for community service. I had it all but a accept a pych. evaluation. I even had the Orange County DA himself on record declaring he would support me receiving a Cert. of Rehab but on the day of court he with-drew his support. Round three we’ll see…

    Thanks again, Janice, for being front and center speaking for all of us!

    Well, I don’t want to sound negative, but I attempted to obtain a certificate of rehabilitation 6-years ago in OC! All of my charges had been dismissed and I was released on SUMMARY probation! Investigators questioned my neighbors, they came to my door at 7pm/I later learned they secretly recorded our conversation, the DA was nuts/angry/accused me of giving her dirty looks, the DA even requested the alleged victim be put on the stand and be questioned/the judge got angry at her and told her no one would allow this and finally the judge stated that he couldn’t find one reason to deny the motion, but it wasn’t enough? Furthermore (this DA pulled all her punches), the DA even subpoenaed my wife to court so she would see this? I literally couldn’t believe what I saw and experienced! On my way out of court, the alleged victim (in front of the DA and investigators) proceeded to make comments towards my wife? I can only imagine what would have happened if I had did the same? OC doesn’t play fair! I lost all respect (my issue took place initially in LA/you must process the petition in the county of your residence) for the judicial system! Even today, its hard to believe! I ran into the DA 2 weeks later in a store 🙂

      I read somewhere – perhaps here – that the Cert of Rehab process has a double-edged sword. Friends, family, co-workers and bosses are interviewed. One is outed to those who were not otherwise aware of your background and might not respond well.

      All the awkwardness would be well worth it, though. Take me of that web site and give me two years – I’ll be back on top! (Of life, not the web site 😉 )

        Can anyone who has gone thru this process in LA County comment on this procedure. Do they ask who you who to talk to at your place of employment? Same with neighbors?

  6. USA

    C, I concur! In my situation, my conviction was (battery) dismissed and its a non disclosable situation. So, if the investigators had made a comment regarding this, they could have been held accountable. ONe neighbor asked me what was going on. I simply told them I was applying for something (a job?) They made really great comments regarding me and my family, but the slime ball investigators simply stated I had no issues with any neighbor. I’m very educated, live in both a very quiet/nice area, now 18 years into this situation and caucasian. When I was going through my process in LA, the DA, Judge and investigators where both very cordial and always professional. I never had any issues. When I went to OC, I was in utter shock. I no longer trust anyone who works in OC. The DA was in my view on the verge of an out of control and angry woman. The Investigator was like something out of a movie/angry/arrogant and he literally wrote anything he wanted on his report. I stated nothing to him. If I was to go it all over again, I would have a document to hand them when they knocked on the door this time, I would simply state call my attorney and we can all meet together and I would have my attorney observe very closely what was going on in the hallways so that he or she could address any concerns with the Judge.
