NV: Supreme Court Delays New Sexual Offender Registry Law

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Supreme Court has delayed the start of the sexual offender registry law, also known as the Adam Walsh Act. The new law, which was to go into effect Feb. 1, would make the names of more sex offenders publicly accessible. The law says a sex offender, as young as 14 years old, must now publicly register.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety expressed concerns about the manpower required to implement the law and sought a delay. Source

    Letter to the LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL;

    Nevada Supreme Court orders delay in enforcement of sex offender registration law
    By ADAM KEALOHA CAUSEY
    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

    I hope you can get this information out to the public. I am a Californian and on the registry for a “crime” that did not involve “sex” and there was no “victim”. Yet I feel like a victim and and I have been punished countless times/continually ever since I was convinced to plead guilty. Ex post facto is not afforded to anyone that has had the misfortune of being arrested for anything that has the label “sex’ attached.

    Empirical evidence shows that the AWA and all of the other feel good laws/act’s do nothing to protect anyone and in fact increase the risk to the public by giving them a false sense of security and not addressing any problem at all; the AWA just $ costs $ costs $ costs. We victims of the AWA here in California and every other state that has adopted the AWA refer to the registry as the “hit list” because it has been used far to many times by vigilantes to locate and harass, assault and murder people on the registry.

    The AWA also has, what some would call unintended consequences for the families and children of people on the public registry. This invariably comes in the form of financial hardship and difficulty finding safe housing, as well as making the registrant virtually unemployable, thus placing added financial hardship on the registrants extended family because they must support them, and the ones whose families can not help end up losing everything and are forced to live on the streets.

    When it comes to children, the very ones the people pushing these laws/acts claim to wish to protect, the effects of their parents being on the registry is devastating. I can not describe what these innocent children go through better than the child that calls herself Kat; here are two links to her YouTube page where she describes what she has been subject to because her father was put on a public registry. The AWA and all associated laws also teach children who’s parent is not on the registry how to hate. The AWA is evil and I am sure if Adam Walsh knew of all the lives (including the childhood of children) destroyed in his name that he would not approve.

    I hope you can get at least some of this information out there so the public can make an informed decision and not a decision based on misinformation, grossly overstated statistics and panic. The strategy for the proponents of these laws is to instill fear backed up with misinformation.

    Thank you for listening to me; Q

      Very nice letter “Q”, you covered a lot of good points.
      As for Nevada; It’s time to pay the piper. They jumped on the AWA band wagon and have been collecting the JAG funds for years, Now they are going to spend ten times what they’ve received implementing AWA and face numerous lawsuits up and down the state from citizens who will now be added to the list. I imagine the lawyer’s are on standby right now. If they had a lick of sense they would give the money back to the SMART office and bow out of this rat’s nest of litigation. Take a queue from Ohio, Kansas, and Oklahoma, and the issues they uncovered while trying to implement this human atrocity.

        Hi Mike

        It appears that Nevada doesn’t have much in the way of RSOL-NV. I looked and all I found was this

        Nevada – Nevada RSOL
        Primary Contact: Charley B – nvrsolhelp@yahoo.com

        It’s a crying change because if registrants in Nevada ever needed an advocate it is now! Perhaps if you contacted Charley B he might be in a position to get your ideas and observations to someone that can make a difference/start an active RSOL-NV.
        My heart breaks for you and all of the other people on the Nevada registry going back to 1956, especially the children that will now be made social outcast’s at a time in their little life when social interaction is of paramount importance in developing and refining social skills they will need and use throughout life.

        As of late, these self serving men that have infected our society have been destroying the freedoms that were won in war; thus making the sacrifices made by the heroes that fought and died meaningless.
        Q 2014 They are a poor example of America

    As a 1-time offender living in Nevada, I’m hopeful that maybe a court will rule against this unconstitutional beast, for once. Has the pendulum/wrecking ball finally started to lose momentum? Will people/courts wake up and realize that more is not better and renders a program more ineffective the bigger it gets? History should tell us that the best we can hope for is a delay in what we fear is inevitable, but maybe people will see the parallel to this and spying on them while they play Angry brds…”just in case.” Time will tell, but hopefully it won’t tell too soon because it always ends up winning on appeal.
