Federal Judge Temporarily Stops Residency Restrictions in Murrieta

Federal judge Virginia Phillips issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) today that prohibits the City of Murrieta from enforcing its residency restrictions against a registrant who moved to his sister’s home earlier this month. The TRO will remain in effect until August 15 when a hearing will be held to determine whether the judge will grant additional injunctive relief.

“This is a great victory for registrants,” stated attorney Janice Bellucci. “For the first time, a federal judge has stopped the enforcement of a city’s residency restrictions in the state of California.”

According to the decision, the city’s application of its restrictions to the plaintiff violates the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution because it was the result of blanket enforcement and did not consider the actual risk posed by the plaintiff. The plaintiff has a Static-99 score of zero and is physically disabled. He moved to Murrieta under an interstate compact, approved by the CA Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, in order to obtain medical care and financial support.

In its decision, the court considered as evidence a recent report issued by the CA Sex Offender Management Board (CASOMB) which concluded that “residence restrictions are likely to have the unintended effect of increasing the likelihood of sexual re-offense.” The report also found that residence restrictions lead to homelessness and are associated with an unstable lifestyle that includes housing instability unemployment.

In its decision, the court noted that the CASOMB report “suggests that allowing Plaintiff to reside with his sister in Murrieta may promote the public’s interest in child safety, as it would provide stability to Plaintiffs’ life and decrease the likelihood he would re-offend. The court also noted that “allowing Plaintiff to remain in his sister’s house may actually further Defendant’s (Murrieta’s) legitimate interest in protecting children.”

Thank you God for judges who get it!!! I’m so happy that this poor man can be close to family and be cared for during his health struggles.
God Bless you, Janice, and all who continue to fight this fight. I pray that this decision becomes permanent and that these cities who continue to violate people’s constitutional rights are found in contempt!!!

This is a nice gift in memory of the late Sharon Runner. May God not rest her soul

A Matthew 25 paraphrase, ‘What Sharon Runner did unto the least of these, she has done unto God’. She may be ‘in the out darkness gashing her teeth’. This is a warning to those whom desires to follow her legacy.

Check out Isaiah 10:1 “Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees…”

Kris Klein, Harry, & Margaret Moon speak Truth! Allow me but to follow in their path & Re-fulfill Righteousness by restating the Teaching of a Hebrew fellow when he too spoke Truth in the Parable of his Father. The Two Debtors (also known as) The Wicked Servant Matthew Chapter 18 23 ¶Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. 24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. 25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded… Read more »
