Online rights restored to sex offenders as Prop 35 is struck down (Radio)

The United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down part of California’s Proposition 35, citing an infringement on free speech that is guaranteed by the First Amendment. Prop 35, a bill put on the ballot via initiated state statute, increased prison terms for human traffickers, required sex traffickers to register as sex offenders, and mandated that all registered sex offenders disclose their internet accounts, among other restrictions. Having been approved by 81% of the state’s electorate, the proposition passed with the highest success rate of any item on the California ballot since its inception in 1914.

Ballot propositions which contain unconstitutional provisions should never be put up for a vote in the first place. The public simply does not have the right to override the Constitution.

I was asking him concerning some public law—-this was during the… Read more »

Well, I think this is another example of the cities or government leaders overstepping the boundaries of the law! I hope this sends a clear message ! I can maybe understand someone required to be banned from using a computer/ect while on Parole, but this was nuts! Great victory!
