NJ: Tracking Sex Offender With GPS Bracelet Violates Constitution (Supreme Court)

Approximately two-thirds of all ex-prisoners are arrested within three years of their release.

With a statistic like that, the risk of sexual predators reoffending is particularly concerning. However, strapping criminals who have served their time with a GPS is not a solution, according to the New Jersey Supreme Court. Full Article

Now they are using other offenders statistics to try and justify their actions and invoke the hyperbole associated with the “frightening and high” recidivism rate that doesn’t exist…Point noted, ain’t gunna happen in my case without an robust rebuttal….Oh, also “emailed my facts doc” !!!!

“…the court found that the constant electronic monitoring imposed on Riley by SOMA, and the laws similarity to parole supervision for life, constitutes a punishment. “Parole is a form of punishment under the Constitution,”

So wouldn’t tagging a passport, which is scanned electronically, be a form of supervision? Isn’t being on an Internet website accessible only thru electronic devices a form electronic monitoring?

“Approximately two-thirds of all ex-prisoners are arrested within three years of their release.

This is usually due to another crime, different from the crime before. Especially in the case of sexual offenses. Someone being re-arrested because they stole something (probably due to the fact that being an ex-con, especially if you are an RC, getting employment and housing is incredibly difficult), is not the same thing as them having raped someone again.

People really need to question these broad statistics. More often than not, they’re very misleading.

more then misleading, they’re outright lies. Whoever tries to use this misinformation in a court of law needs to be disciplined by the court or state bar association, or show cause why they are trying to deceive the courts in order to obstruct and subvert justice….that’s a fact…..No one has ever called them out on it, but I will….As potus would say..”Believe me”….lmao…

I wonder how all these politicians and media giants like Bill Oriely are enjoying the sexually motivated hyperbole, whether it’s true ir not, witch hunt now that it’s directed at them and ruining there lives and carreers? Sweet revenge and karma….Love it…

Unfortunately, the justice alluded to the fact that if they are on parole, they can be tagged. NJ has lifetime parole for most offenses that require registration nowadays, so only those convicted prior to 2007 have any standing.

If only judges here were as honest like the judges in the NJ court and not motivated by fear.
