MI: New sex offender rules stalled

Passage seems increasingly unlikely for a bill that would limit the places registered sex offenders can work and was inspired by the discovery that sex offenders worked at a Lansing nonprofit that serves victims of sexual assault. Full Article

I know celebrating this would technically be premature but it did bring a smile to my face because of the previous Michigan slap down.

I just hope the retroactive bit stands.

This legislature trying to pass this law is a anarcist. He wants to restrict jobs to ex offenders trying to rehabilitate and reintragate back into society. Mind you the 6th circuit doesn’t like banishment laws but he wants to banish rehabilitated offenders thirty two years later. The one guy that didn’t do anything wrong was convicted in 1984 and now volunteers giving back to the community and not a shread of evidence of any wrong doing should be restricted from working with or around kids. How many jobs have zero kids present? Seriously isn’t this nutter just saying he’s for destabilizing a rehabilitated guy and his family?

What a waste of tax payers money trying to push this can’t work legislation. Hundreds of untested rape kits, bad water still in Flint. Detroit schools near bankruptcy but he has time for this? Lol

Does anyone know what the Michigan laws were prior to the first round of amendments in 2006?

Hi Joe,

I’m not sure if this answers your question,but this was on Michigan’s ACLU website

I was convicted on 6-19-92, way before Michigan even had a registry, so i am hoping was the courts back a final ruling on doe v Snyder, I will be removed all together, since my constitutional rights were obviously violated. Ps let me know ig the link helped you at all,and answered your question. Happy New Year to you.

Thanks, Bobby. So was everyone on the 25 year plan before 2006/2011? Is that 25years after conviction or after sanctions terminate? I I thought that I saw some reference to “10years after release from prison’ somewhere in one article.
It sure sounds like Michigan went WAY beyond the normal AWA classifications for Tier 3 if they are putting “Romeo and Juliet” registrants on for life as a Tier 3. The ACLU may have picked the perfect plaintiffs in those cases.
To my mind, it sounds like a lot more people have a chance at getting off of the Ohio registry because of how they reclassified people,particualrly out of state registrants. I wonder which of the states in the 6th if any, will have to change their laws? Kentucky already had some of theirs draconian laws struck down and the only thing that Tennessee does that is really questionable is to say that out of staters have to be on the Tennessee registry for 5 years before they can invoke the 10 year rule and that includes the residency restrictions. I am not sure when Tennessee passed their 1000 foot rule or their internet identifier rules.

I wonder how many people have their charged changed to fit under a new states registry. I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal maybe but it irks me that my attempted L&L was changed to just L&L. It’s not what I was given so how do they do things like that legally.


Pre 2006 is 15 years after release or 25 years after conviction; which ever is longer.

The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the emergency stay request of Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. The 2006 and 2011 amendments to the Michigan Sex Offender Act can no longer be enforced. The State of Michigan’s will be heard on it’s appeal, but must comply with the lower courts rulings for now.

Michigan is not doing anything right now to change the law(stalling); their hoping that their request for review will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. Michigan barely made the deadline for this request in the middle of December. We should be hearing something from the court before the middle of March. Mind you (and don’t get too excited)…The U.S. Supreme Court gets 8,000 request for review each year and only 80 are heard. The Court denied their earlier request for an emergency stay on the ruling.

Your statement ” Michigan barely made the deadline” is kinda funny. I’ve never known any attorney that didn’t “just barely” make a deadline and usually only after approved extensions to that deadline have been exhausted. That would be like expecting a student to turn in their homework early for no reason.


I spoke to Ms Aukerman last week and she told me that we will probably not hear anything from SCOTUS, until early spring or late spring, and yes I believe they will deny the review considering Justice Kagan denied Schuttes request. She also told me that as far as the Michigan Supreme Court case goes with People v Telemkoski we could hear something any day now, or just wait to the last minute if they choose to do so, it’s a waiting game at this point. Just you would like to know what she told me personally. ps even if they not hear the case it is good news for us we WIN. GAME OVER for Michigan.

In regards to People v Telemkoski, what is the merits of this case or is there a misspelling? I have been unable to locate it?


You can find the case argument on youtube with Ms Aukerman, it’s about a little over an hour along very good argument in my opinion, it sounds like we could win that case.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
