Anaheim, Grand Terrace Suspend Enforcement of Sex Offender Ordinances

The cities of Anaheim and Grand Terrace have agreed to suspend enforcement of sex offender ordinances that prohibit registered citizens from visiting public parks and other recreational areas. The cities reached this agreement with California RSOL after the organization notified them of recent appellate court decisions that such ordinances were preempted by state law and therefore could not be lawfully enforced.

“These agreements are significant victories for registered citizens throughout the state of California,” stated CA RSOL President Janice Bellucci. “They will allow more than 105,000 citizens, their family members and friends to enjoy the recreational opportunities in those cities.”

“City ordinances that restrict the presence of registered citizens are based upon several myths including the myth of stranger danger,” stated CA RSOL board member Charlene Steen. “The facts are that more than 90 percent of sexual assaults upon children are perpetrated by family members, teachers, coaches and members of the clergy.”

California RSOL sent letters to 72 cities on January 20 notifying them of the recent decisions made by the California Court of Appeal which declared void the presence restrictions adopted by both Orange County and the City of Irvine. The letters demanded that the remaining cities with such ordinances repeal them within 60 days or be faced with the possibility of a legal challenge.
Since issuance of the demand letter, more than 10 cities have agreed either to repeal or stay enforcement of their ordinances until the California Supreme Court decided whether to grant review of the Court of Appeal decisions.

“We are prepared to file a lawsuit in federal district court on March 24 challenging the ordinance of one city that has failed to repeal or stayed enforcement of its ordinance,” stated Bellucci. “Additional lawsuits are expected to be filed if cities continue to violate the constitution by enforcing ordinances which prohibit registered citizens from visiting parks, beaches and other recreational areas.”

Wow!!! This is amazing!!!

Politicians will soon learn to wear metal cover-plates for their behinds around Janice.. she’s got a nasty habit of whooping A$$.

As long as that a$$ whooper isn’t aimed at me, I think it’s a great habit!

Way to go!!!

Yes!This is great. Let’s keep moving forward!

Another great success. THANK YOU Janice! You are the best!

Janice you Rock!!! Thank You so much, this means a lot to my family and many others.

Excellent news. Now they’re running scared!

Awesome job, Janice!

Thank you Janice on behalf of my son. I know you, Frank and others are putting in long hours. Your hard work is very much appreciated.

Me, my son and our dogs went to the Park after being denied for two years. It felt oh so good !! I can’t believe that we can visit again, I feel like a regular citizen once again. When the law came in affect It seemed so unfair but as a RSO I felt as though there was nothing I can do. Today I can hang my head a little higher and exercise more and let my dogs run for their health. Thanks again Janice you are helping us live a better life one battle at a time.

Yes, thank you Janice and CA RSOL, but until this ordinance is repealed it is still a crime to go to the park.

Good news! El Centro is jumping on this bandwagon as well, they’ve repealed their own ordinances too!

Does anyone know where we can get a list of cities and their position on this?

There are many issues involved here. The sovereign right of a parent (any parent) to be with their child in public places is mandated not just by natural law (a mother bear even has the right to be with her cubs) but also spiritual law and Constitutional law. The reason for having a sex offender registry was for the worst of the worst (child molesters and rapist) but if someone is deemed so bad then why are they even amongst us? Why do we have parole and probation departments? Is it not to ensure those that get out of prisons… Read more »
