July 2013 Ruling / Preliminary Injunction
SJC ruling keeps 6,000 Level 2 sex offenders off state web registry
It’s not always easy to stand up for the constitution but this is such welcome news! I can feel the pendulum starting to swing and we can thank Janice for most of what is happening here in California.
Keep up the fight everyone!
This is wonderful! I can see that “Tipping Point” in sight!
Welcomed news, indeed.
Such great news. Maybe there is hope for us all.
Janice, what do we have to do to challenge this in California? If it’s just a matter of money, how much would you need to get it started? Maybe we could start a collection among us for this issue. I for one was not on the public registry until 2010. (Conviction was 2001). Before 2010 I had a job and very many friends. As soon as I was listed I lost my job and most of my friends. I now just hide at home with no life and always afraid of vigilante attacks.
I actually had to read the article twice to be sure I was seeing what I was seeing. At long last; a sane decision.
I’ve been waiting a long time to see some type of turn-around. This experience is Difficult and stressful, way beyond description. Can I ask if there will be any impact here in Calif?
Janice, can you tell us if this gives us new hope?
