El Centro City Council repeals city ordinance on registered sex offender restrictions

El Centro City Council approved repealing a city ordinance relating to registered sex offender restrictions due to a state law that precedes the city’s ordinance.

The city recently received a letter from a nonprofit group asking them to repeal the ordinance and would challenge the ordinance in court if it was not repealed in 60 days, El Centro Mayor Viegas-Walker said.

El Centro and many other cities throughout the state are now having to repeal ordinances implemented in 2006 while the state figured out what the rules would be, said City Manager Ruben Duran. The ordinance, he said, came at a time when there was inadequacy in the state law. Full Article

Thank you, El Centro, for repealing your law which violated bot the state and federal constitutions. Thank you, report, for your well written article that captured the fact that a “nonprofit group” asked the City to repeal its ordinance and warned the City that their ordinance could be legally challenged if they did not. Your article also captured the fact that presence restrictions are preempted by state law and not authorized by Jessica’s Law or any other state law as some elected officials, including but not limited to the Orange County DA, have argued.

Thank you.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
