RSOL is excited to announce that Janice Bellucci will lead our exhibit at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ (NACDL) Sex Crimes Training Seminar in Las Vegas. This exhibit is a fantastic opportunity for RSOL to network with and appeal to attorneys to join with us because the NACDL is the premier national organization of defense lawyers. We often hear that RSOL should clone Ms. Bellucci so that we can file challenges across the country. We agree, and believe that she is the best person to represent us at the NACDL Seminar. RSOL Board of Directors member Larry Neely will be with her.
Janice will discuss the many lawsuits she has settled in California regarding proximity restrictions and emphasizes that nearly all of those settlements have resulted in the defendants paying attorney’s fees. Those fees have enabled her to engage in additional litigation that otherwise would have been impossible without direct funding from the litigants themselves.
Very recently Ms. Belluci filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) challenging their requirement that parolees post signs on Halloween. After being served the lawsuit, the CDCR announced that it would not enforce the sign requirement this year. Janice intends to continue that lawsuit until either the court rules against her or the CDCR agrees to never enforce the requirement again. Her most recent litigation involves California’s Megan’s Law website and demands that its legal violations be either immediately corrected or that it be taken down. This lawsuit is generating a stir in California, as well it should.
This exhibition at the NACDL is possible because of the generous support of RSOL’s membership. Thank you and we will update you as the event unfolds. From National RSOL
