MA: Judge Critical of Sex-Offender Registry Confirmed to Massachusetts High Court

Making a mild criticism of sex offender registries looked like it could have hurt a Massachusetts judge in her bid to serve on the state’s Supreme Judicial Court. But on Wednesday the Governor’s Council, an eight-member elected body responsible for approving judicial nominees, voted unanimously in favor of Superior Court Judge Kimberly Budd’s nomination to serve as an associate justice.

During a grilling by the Governor’s Council last week, Budd had said the state Sex Offender Registry is too expansive, ensnaring people who are far from a threat to anyone. She added that this opinion stemmed not from her “professional experience, but just hearing about people who wind up on the registry that don’t necessarily need to be there and aren’t really sex offenders.” Full Article

    Exactly what’s needed for scales to be fair…separation of powers so an issue is checked & balanced and not just railroaded through.
    Outstanding..!
