OH: Lawmakers keep piling on those convicted of sex crimes

How much is too much? ____ ____ must be asking himself that very question. The on-again, off-again Youngstown State University football player is embroiled in a controversy of his own making.

____ served about 10 months in a juvenile detention facility after he and a high-school teammate were convicted in 2013 of raping a 16-year-old girl.

In January, he joined the YSU football team as a nonscholarship walk-on. In August, ____  was informed by university officials that he would be required to sit-out a season. Full Editorial

    From the article:
    In January, he joined the YSU football team as a nonscholarship walk-on. In August, Richmond was informed by university officials that he would be required to sit-out a season.

    More penalties based off of a past conviction. This is what Justice Souter denoted in the 2003 Doe v Smith decision.

      Yeah. I get the concept of collateral consequences, which typically are of indefinite length. But they are typically static, i.e. imposed and that’s it. Or are they supposed to be constantly shifting and increasing consequences, too? I am unaware of any other situation where collateral consequences constantly shift and change as they do for RCs. This idea was even raised during oral arguments for Smith (by Souter?). So I guess someone convicted of securities fraud would have the collateral consequence of losing their Series 7 broker license. Then if the State so decides, can later on impose a regulatory sanction of $10,000? Or ban him/her from banks? Or from using cash? Where does the State’s ability to impose collateral consequences end? From what SCOTUS has so far ruled (or not ruled, really), it is limitless.

    This seems to touch on an issue among you CA RCs about the screwed up tiers in that bill:
    Gottschalk said during a recent interview, “According to the latest statistics on federal prosecutions, we are meting out longer sentences on average to people who view child pornography than to people who actually sexually abuse children.”
    Yeah, makes sense.
