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?

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.
