MI: Appeals judges call for change to sex offenders registration law

The state appeals court recently called for state lawmakers to amend the state Sex Offenders Registration Act to show it includes offenders convicted of nonsexual crimes against children.

A three-judge panel of the state Court of Appeals made the statements in a March 26 opinion in which it denied the appeal of ____ _ ____, 48, of Sterling Heights, who along with two co-defendants was convicted in 2012 of 10 crimes related to imprisoning, assaulting and torturing four male juveniles for several hours in retaliation for breaking into his home. He is serving a nearly seven-year prison term.

____ and his co-defendants were required to register as a sex offender because unlawful imprisonment of a minor is a listed offense in the state law. Full Article

Maybe they need another registry …. an assault registry for everyone convicted of a violence-related offense. Oh, and make sure it’s retroactive all the way back to 1980!

Domestic violence, bar fights, spanked your child … register them all, I say!

See what I mean? They call things that are not remotely related to “sex” sexual! This is insanity!

“… Bosca’s inclusion on the list could affect him in many ways, such as where he lives and employment, among others.” We can’t have someone who has only been convicted “of extortion, four counts of unlawful imprisonment, felony firearm and four counts of felonious assault, as well as possession of marijuana and operating a drug house” cluttering up our sex offended registry and causing any disruption to his life and employment.
