NV: Nevada’s Disappearing Sex Offender

Big changes for sex offenders in the western US state of Nevada.  If implemented on February 1, 2014 as planned, the stealth roll out of the Adam Walsh Act will have a number of unintended consequences.  These include: a dramatic increase in the number of citizens required to register as sex offenders including all those as far back as 1956 who were convicted of sex crimes against minors–even when the offender was himself a minor at the time.  So a 12-year-old boy who in 1956 who molested his 10-year-old sister would now be required to register as an FDR 3.  FDR stands for “frequency and duration of registration.”  FDR 3 requires former offenders to register their name and address every three months.  The number of people who would be required to register quarterly (FDR 3)  is estimated to rise in the Reno metro area alone from a few dozen to about 3,000 to 4,000 individuals.  The number will rise to some 40,000 individuals across the state.

I’ve always been a little confused about the adam walsh act. How could this brilliant piece of legislation have saved his son from being lured away by a predator in an a department store. What were the parents doing?
Silly me, I’ve just always kept my children close at hand and never lost one yet.
Different strokes for different folks I guess?

Lol! Reminds me of a criminal minds episode, where the kid gets nabbed at the mall while the mom is shopping

This is a very rational article. I sincerely hope the author is correct and that the whole mess is “appearing to collapse under it’s own weight.” It would, however, seem that some legislators are still beating this horse during it’s “death throes.”

The AWA is a joke period. It makes the law retroactive for anyone convicted of a sex offense which is unconstitutional, and violates the US Constitution. There are states that have ruled it unconstitutional for them trying to make the law retroactive. Not only that, but I found out that John Walsh admitted that wham he was 22 16 he went out with someone that was underage. John Walsh was 22 and the girl who’s name was Reve was 16. How can they make a law for him about this when if he was caught he would of been a… Read more »

John Walsh, by his own admission, meets the qualifications for such an offender and should be prosecuted for statutory rape and subject to the framework of this law.

Hi j; I totally agree. John Walsh by his own admission went after a 17yo girl, but in keeping with the accepted norm I will call her an underage terrorized child. Anyone else would be in prison and on the registry for life if they made that admission. I believe the man needs a lengthy prison sentence as well as an “exploding anus chip” because he is one of the biggest purveyors of anus logic around. I’ve said it before and I will say it again; This man has destroyed thousands lives {including mine)and ruined the childhood of countless children… Read more »

It would not have; she was negligent, period. I did not do that.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
