Kaitlin Durbin has written a touching story about a young man, David, who has been on the Colorado sex offender registry for over a decade for consensual teenage sex with his girlfriend. She tells, briefly, some of the difficulties that public registration posed for him in his attempts to live a normal life, and she shares his relief and joy that he has now successfully been removed.
The title given the piece — and writers and journalists seldom select their own titles — is “Colorado Springs man removed from sex offender registry in ‘unusual’ case.” Several times in the article the fact that this case was so rare was referenced. The attorney spoke of the case as having no precedent.
From what I could tell — and my legal acumen is somewhere down there with what I know about building rocket ships — the only thing “unusual” is the fact that he was actually removed.
I have a Florida 794.011(5) Attempted S Battery Without Force or Little Force depending what year you read it (Adult) for a Alleged outside of the shirt breast Grope!. I noticed it says per the Smart Office that this Florida offense does not meet Sornas requirements’. Does anybody know if this charge will qualify for removal in the future? I’m still perplexed everyday how on earth this false charge is even a S charge with no Sex of any kind! If it doesn’t help with Florida does it do anything at the Federal Level? I see some states this would not even be a Felony or on the Registry. Thanks
