Living with 290: Being a 290 Registrant convicted of a DUI in SLO county

I’ve been required to register in CA for an indecent exposure charge for the last 15 years of my life. Just as an FYI in SLO county they use that against you for a DUI arrest.

I admit I had a drinking problem and should not have been behind the wheel. But all I have heard from the beginning of the trial is your a sex offender. I’ve since become sober and do not drink. Even have been denied sheriffs work program due to being registered in CA. I cannot believe the system uses that as a basis of judgment in a completely different situation. I have been a perfect well employed citizen of the county and in complete compliance just made a stupid choice to drink and drive and automatically got the worst I could due to being a 290 offender. I’ve talked to numerous other people who had what you would call worse DUI offenses even 3 or 4 and got classes and an ankle bracelet. Not incarceration as a 290 registrant.

I wanted to put this out there to warn others like me be careful and if you have a way to get a COR do it. Plus stay out of trouble for any type of crime. I wish I would have done it before learning the system uses any type of offense as a sex crime (even a DUI) and your also denied half time in county jail. Only because of the 290 registration. Has nothing to do with my DUI charges which I admit was wrong but the system is being excessive due to the 290 registration and I was told so by the system. Very weird I can come and go as I please before and after incarceration for the DUI. But I don’t qualify for an ankle monitor in lieu of incarceration only because of the 290 registration. The only good part is I’m clean and sober now. And aware I need to step up to help the cause to stop the injustice we all get to deal with for our own different reasons.

  1. Q

    The bias and prejudice runs from the highest courts down to the lowliest courts. Many of these people know the truth, but are too cowardly to stand up for truth. Instead they treat the “SO” lie as a truth, mostly in the interest of keeping stupidity alive and the job security.
