IL: It’s time to take juveniles off the sex offender lists

A new report by the Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission takes aim at the disturbingly common practice of forcing juvenile sex offenders to comply with sex offender registries, often for life. Its conclusion: “Remove young people from the state’s counter-productive sex offender registry . . . There is no persuasive evidence that subjecting youth to registries improves public safety or reduces risks of future offending. The research does not indicate registries repair harm to victims.” Full Article

  1. Q

    It’s “past time” to take “everyone” off the sex offender list. Nationwide!

      Here, here. If these lawmakers can accually prove someone to be so dangerous, that person needs everyone to know where he is, then why isn’t he committed to an institution under professional supervision?

      • Q

        Hi Tim:

        Have you noticed the trend of locking people up because they “might, or could possibly” do something seems to be getting more common?

        I’m not real sure being an American is such a good idea anymore!
        But where to go?
