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?

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.”

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.

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