    A thought occurred… the article mentions the legal decisions against the County of Orange and the City of Irvine – the very cases that all of this is based on. Correct me if I am wrong but I have heard neither of these jurisdictions repealing their ordinances.

    At the time of this writing both still have the ordinance in their on-line code, Sec. 3-18-1 thru 806 for OC County and Sec. 4-14-801 thru 805.

    Have they not repealed? How could this be?

  2. Q

    Geez! They make Frank sound like some sort of hit man with his muscle; Janice. Funny how they fail to mention that these presence restrictions are now illegal. They make it sound like Tony baloney isn’t the brainchild behind these ordinances in OC; he and his staff went out and vigorously convinced these cities they needed these ordinances. OC sucks.

    Thank you Frank, for standing up for yourself and taking the punches. You keep standing back up, standing your ground. That is a quality that is very hard to find in a person. You are an inspiration the rest of us law abiding citizens (well at least for me you are).

    Thank you again Janice, for being a great lawyer doing the right thing. While it may be undesirable in the public eye to represent any “sex offender”, the truth of the matter is what who’ve known for some time now: The rights of a group of people are being violated. Continued allowance of law abiding citizens to be trampled on by our lawmakers is in direct contrast to what made our country a great country. Unfortunately, when people keep suppressing and trampling on the constitutional rights of any American, a registrant or otherwise, they are playing a game of “slippery slope” in which all Americans will eventually be caught up in. Your continued representation for those who’s rights are being violated show the rest of the world that you are a woman with some of the biggest steel, um,… “kahoona’s” around.

    Is the reason that Orange County has not been sued for not repealing its ban is that it was their ordinance in the first place that the court ruled against and so it was automatically rendered null and void as a result?

  5. Tim

    It always irks me when Frank is labeled a sex offender and Janice is defending sex offenders, i.e., “criminals.” The term is in the present and connotes that the man is actively offending or has a strong predisposition to offend. Neither which is true. It’s been decades since the conviction, and he has been a model citizen since. At minimum call him an ex offender, or better yet a citizen adversely affected by these ordinances. Even our families are adversely affected by these ordinances, whose only crime was supporting a loved one, and which came into existence years after many of us were sentenced. Journalists, please use language that reflects the facts!

    • Q

      I know what you mean Tim. It’s like they’re pointing their finger in a crowd saying “he’s a sex offender.” These idiot’s never consider the fact, if they are even aware, that not all registrants that wear the scarlet letter are on the “list” for a sexual act. They usually don’t believe that people change, and they are usually so full of misinformation and outright lies. It’s totally disturbing to think and know that the majority of the populace is in a deep stupor when it comes to registrants.

  6. Someone who cares

    I thought the ordinances were officially repealed. I recall seeing a link to all the current ordinances, and they mention what cities have repealed so far, and which ones are not enforcing. Can Janice maybe confrim this?

    • Margaret Moon

      Some cities have repealed. Some said they would not enforce, and some have tried to “hang tough” but it’s all moot because the courts have found any restrictions that supersede the state laws unconstitutional. They are void.

      I would be very interested to know how the gentleman who was arrested in a park came out. I bet the charges were dropped. Quietly.
