Annual Registration Procedure

Annual Registration: I just went for my annual registration in OC. I literally had to read about the 5 -day statue. Is it 5-working days or 5 days period. Its 5-working days.

I showed up on a Monday morning, office was empty and the woman was dressed in an almost uniform. This was my first time to see this. The women in the office (3) all looked up? I’ve been registering here for a long time. The woman greeted me, was very business like and kind of acts like you don’t know what your doing. I took the paper and filled it out in about 15 minutes. Some people ask for proof of residence? I’ve been asked in the past and sometimes not? If OC does 1-2 (they do in my neighborhood) compliance checks a year, why do they need this?

A few other individuals walked in after me (background checks) and the wait was terrible. I was eventually allowed to give finger prints via a scanner/computer and then these are sent to the FBI to verify me? After another 10-15 minutes, she asked me to come back in, took a photo and gave me a copy of the registration with the receipt and a finger print on this. She literally stated that I must carry this receipt around with me or I could be arrested? I have a graduate degree, I’m very educated and very aware of the laws. I have read NO WHERE that this is a law! I offered a rebuttal, but she confirmed this? I didn’t find her overly educated and left and kept it. This was rather disturbing. I also asked for a few clarifications regarding the laws! She recommended I call SONAR.

In summary, the entire process took (I’m very serious/2 hours and 15 minutes?). I found this to be very disturbing. There were no lines and I can only wonder how anyone who works a full time job can make the time to get into OC and manage this? I came prepared, was diligent and didn’t mess around? So, I might recommend filing a lawsuit to make the OC Department open up on the weekends? I’m serious. Or, perhaps provide sex offenders a more timely manner in which they can remain employed and register?

Here is another thought. I asked to use the restroom? Read this Janice. If you are there for 2 hours or more, you need a restroom. They woman told me that I could use the park restroom across the street? Well, doesn’t Santa Ana have a ban on sex offenders visiting parks or libraries?

I’ve also registered before and its taken 3 hours or more? So, here is food for thought. Sue OC to have more access to restrooms while registering and speed up the process? Any thoughts? This war wont be won with stupidity, but rather with the use of intellectual capital!
