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

Contacting my lawyer right now on this..

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 ?

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.

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… Read more »

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?

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… Read more »
