    I predicted this only a few years ago….

    I’m not the only one who saw this coming either.

    My advocacy for reform of sex offender laws began not just because i was placed on the registry, but also because i knew it more political than it was about safety.

    Colorado is just plain wrong and can’t seem to find the honesty and integrity to admit when they screwed up; 800 times!. If this article shows me anything about that state it is that it’s like California insofar as proving by their actions and logic, (if you can call it that) as well as results that their registry and all associated laws have nothing to do with public safety or saving “just one child.” I’m not really sure what it’s all about over there, but it’s obviously not about law, justice, honesty or integrity; I think that’s pretty obvious!!!! It’s pretty clear they have allot of problems they need to straighten out.

    Sorry to be the ones to tell you this, but California does this too. While on parole, I knew two different individuals who were never convicted of a sex crime yet on parole like one, as well as several whose “sex crimes” were misdemeanors and one even who never had a felony conviction in his life but found himself in prison and then on parole for probation violations for misdemeanors.

    Yes, California does this as well. I know someone very well who was not convicted of crimes that mandate registration, yet was sentenced by the judge to register anyway, basically just so the judge could cover himself. This judge stated, “I don’t believe your story, so I’m going to sentence you to register.” That was in 2008. Since then, a similar case has worked it’s way up to the CA Supreme Court. Keep your eye on People v. Moseley. It has been at the Supreme Court for 2 years now awaiting the scheduling of oral arguments. I think it is a good sign that the court didn’t simply dismiss it. My friend also has filed a writ on the same grounds, and it has been found to have merit as well and is working its way up. His lawyer is charging a very low fee because she wants to be at the forefront of this. She feels he will prevail, but it will take some time. He is currently on a 5 year probation with ankle monitor for forgetting to register on time. These cases argue that the registry is additional punishment, especially since the passage of AB 109, which is a violation of rights based on Cunningham, Blakely, etc. The climate is changing, albeit too slowly. If the court rules in favor of Moseley I think things will change.
