Anyone who would rape and murder is beyond by understand, so I don’t know the right answer to this, but it is clear that GPS is not the answer. I am reminded of Ronald Reagan who famously said that the best social program ever invented was a good job. The government (at a state and federal level) should dial back on command and control and work especially hard at finding sex offenders good jobs. Or at least not prevent them from finding good jobs.

The only this this whole thing shows me is that GPS failed and is not a viable solution for anything, and the registry failed (again) and is not a viable solution for anything either. Neither of these supposed solutions work; and the pile of dead bodies that gets higher each year proves the registry’s failure and the failure of GPS. These quacks ignore the truth and praise the failures that were responsible for these two murderers and once again, the registrant gets the blame for the systems failure and the failures of those responsible for making sure the system works as promised.

Just more trash news.

No offense guys, but I do have to agree with the memo. Lets be real. NOTHING can prevent a crime from being committed unless the perpetrator is in custody! So, its very obvious that serious parole/probation and GPS monitoring can do nothing to prevent crimes from being committed! LEts get serious, we can turn this negative into a positive. Perhaps the State needs to institute a tier system where only High Risk Sex Offenders are monitored and those who are mid to low risk fall off the registry?

Guys, we need to recall who we are dealing with! First, we have 2 sex offenders who committed murder while on parole! (you always have to look at things with a different perspective/things aren’t always as black and white as they seem). Clearly, someone is going to sue the State of California for serious money! So, have you ever heard of a city or State admitting to guilt! Got it! Even if they had been at fault, they wouldn’t admit it. We all agree that the State of California is all messed up! California needs to wake up and realize that you can’t continue to keep misdemeanor or even expunged individuals on the Registry. Thats nuts! I plead to my (1) count almost 18 years ago. All (5) original counts where dismissed, I received my bail back and surrendered myself almost 3 months later to jail/or I had the chance of going to a lock down facility. I also receive SUMMARY PROBATION? My probation ( I can’t give it all away) stated stay away from prostitutes basically. The charge was eventually reduced to a misdemeanor and expunged (I simply mailed in the expungement request and it was granted/never showed up to court). I eventually (I live in OC) want to OC to request a Certificate of Rehab after 13 or so years, but the DA was a monster and the Judge declined to grant it after stating, I can’t find one reason to deny the motion, but its not enough. Motion denied. Not to get into details again, but I’ll be living in LA County for about a year in about a few months/long story. I was thinking of attempting to file this motion in LA, since I will be living in the city. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas with regards to this? I know for a fact that the Legal System in LA is much different then OC? I’m educated, went back to school and obtained a BA and MBA? Any suggestions? Thoughts? Anyone with any past experiences in LA? Filing (on my own) 17 (B) and PC1203.4 in LA was simple and no issues/granted? My plea or current situation is that my charge/expunged prevents me from being (battery) on the Megans website and its not a high risk or serious. Its considered an other ? Thanks

It is, thank you for the advice. . I’ve also heard Dan Diego is an easier county to obtain a COR. I just don’t live in the area. I’ll probably be contacting the Public Defenders Office or file it on my own. I filed the last one in OC , but later had an attorney represent me after the DA became nuts! I also filed both my reduction and expungement without representation
