Wouldn’t it be nice if this were actually TRUE? This attorney should get her head back in the books and understand nothing of what she said is true …. “Grandfathered in … ” … Yeah, right. If it were only that easy for those convicted before 2006! “Jessica’s Law prohibits registered sex offenders from being 2,000 feet within a school or playground, but if the crime happened before 2006, the law doesn’t apply to those offenders. Sex offenses attorney Kresta Daly explained it’s like being grandfathered in. “The way that penal code section with the 2,000-foot rule was written, it’s… Read more »

she is actually correct, There is no language in Jessica s law stating that it is retroactive, A federal judge said in 2007 that “in order for it to be a retroactive law, that they would have had to put in the bill. (which they didn’t).

Jessica’s Law also expressly authorized municipalities to enhance and extend this restriction. Most cities that have such ordinances have it apply to all those required to register under PC 290, regardless of date of offense or conviction. (PC 3003.5)

ONCE again if you crime predicated November 8th 2006, and you were released from incarceration prior to November 8th 2006, THEY CANNOT APPLY IT!!!! PC (3003.5 ) is codified for parolees ONLY.
A federal judge ruled Friday that California’s ban on sex offenders living within 2,000 feet of places where children gather can’t be applied retroactively.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton said” there was nothing in the so-called Jessica’s Law that specified its provisions were intended to be applied retroactively.” He added that state law requires the statute apply from the date it takes effect.

Then that should also be true for ANY changes to PC 290 including posting of information if the case was prior to the law’s enactment!

Did they internet addition include “retroactive in it?

Easily one of the worst-informed articles that I’ve seen linked to this site in a long time. Neither the reporter, the police or the “concerned citizen” got anything right.

Yep that’s why they just got educated with the following in a post and email to the writer. I really wish the media and any other organization would stop publishing, producing or relying on reports and opinions from law makers or any organizations about how great sex offender registration and notification laws work or how residency restrictions and presence restrictions are needed. They are using false statistics and pure myths to further their personal agendas under the guise of protecting children. None of these failed policies have achieved any positive results in the US and are in fact destroying the… Read more »


Thank you for the time, effort and presence of mind to state the facts so concisely and eloquently. This is very effective and should be a lesson to the legislators that enact these statutes. If they took even a portion of time to research and find the truth before lies become law, we’d be much better off as a group and as a society.

Well stated, well informed and an inspiration to us all!

KCRA visited every registered sex offenders’ listed residence near the school. Many weren’t home, are living at a senior facility, or weren’t interested in talking.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
