Breaking down the Michigan bills+ Breaking down the Michigan bills intended to stop the next Larry Nassar

[ 4/24/18]

It’s been three months since Larry Nassar was sent to spend the rest of his life in prison for criminal sexual conduct, after more than 200 women and girls said he sexually abused them. Now, representatives in Michigan’s state House are considering bills they hope will prevent other predators from following in his footsteps.

There are more than 30 bills total, which range from more rigorous medical practice requirements to extending the statute of limitations on criminal sexual conduct prosecutions and lawsuits. Most have bipartisan sponsorship.

    What I don’t get is, why the life sentence behind bars for that Nassar guy? I mean, they’ve said it before that the Registry “protects”
    Why not simply have him fill out a Price Club form, snap a photo of him, and just…..yuh know….have him do THAT once a year…? Otherwise…..what’s the point? Just say’n, I mean I’ve never assaulted anyone in my life, I’ve never preyed on another human being but here I’am doing MY part year after year. Something…..seems off.

    • @RTF

      While your point is a good one, it would repeat the same arguments that has Judge Persky in hot water for giving Brock Turner his sentence.

    This is what I want to know since I live in Michigan, and I am currently waiting to be removed from the registry, because of the 6th Circuit’s decision. Why are they screwing with these bills, when they have not even really began to fix the registry that should of been revised months ago,. Nasser is toast, time to move on and fix the registry instead of dragging their feet and putting crap off. These Bills can wait, the revising the registry can’t and shouldn’t have to wait any longer.

    • Bill

      YES, haven’t heard anything, so I say pay up, what about the class action?

      • Bobby

        @Bill. I haven’t heard anything regarding the class action lawsuit, except for when they said they should be filing in about two weeks, but that was about a month ago. I did hear from a so called staff member of Senator Rick Jones, but all they said is everyone is still working on it and it should be fixed by the end of the year. Well in my opinion that is too late, it should be fixed now, not when the Michigan Legislature gets around to it, or feels like it.

        • Bill

          We’ve been jumping through hoops way to long, I talked to a attorney and he wanted $5000, and said, it might take up to 4/12 years after the appeals, I asked can I sue and get money damages, he said no, but the case would help others, like you I’m off anyway next year, but shouldn’t be on it anyway! thanks for your update.

    • Bobby

      This is what I just got back from Tim P. of Michigan’s ACLU,

      You have read it wrong at this point the ruling only applied to the plaintiffs in the case. We are filing a class action law suit and then if we win it will apply to you.  Please follow the law as it is now written as you may get arrested if you do not. Please follow your local news as that is how you will find updates as to what is going on.  We are getting many request for information and we will be unable to answer them all or in a timely fashion.
      Tim P ACLU of Michigan SOR Specialist but since the 6th circuit did not modify their decision in anyway it says it applies to everyone

      The case was brought only on behalf of the six named plaintiffs. However, if the Court of Appeals’ decision is not modified during further appeals, the court’s reasoning that the current version of SORA is punishment will apply to everyone whose offense was committed before July 1, 2011. The court’s reasoning that the geographic exclusion zones are punishment will apply to everyone whose offense was committed before January 1, 2006. The relevant date is the date of the offense, not the date of conviction.

      We also won Temelkoski case which says

      The Michigan Supreme Court currently has pending before it People v. Temelkoski, 498 Mich 942 (2015), which, like Does, concerns the question of whether SORA violates the Ex Post Facto Clause. (Temelkoski also has due process claims with respect to the registration of individuals adjudicated under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act.) It is unclear what will happen if the Michigan Supreme Court reaches a different conclusion than the Sixth Circuit on the Ex Post Facto issue.

      So again, WE WON, both cases, so BOTH CASES APPLY TO EVERYONE, NOT just the original 6 ,in Does v Snyder, or the Temelkoski case. So WHY everyone is dragging their feet,including the ACLU at this point I don’t understand. CRAP my conviction was 1992, so I shouldn’t even be on it period.


      • Josh

        At least you heard from the ACLU, I sent in my info for the class action and haven’t heard so much as a peep…little discouraging that the class action hasn’t been filed yet either as I thought it was supposed to be filed a couple months ago…like you, I never should have been on the registry either as my offense pre-dated the damned thing! I’m losing my optimism quickly that this won’t be resolved in the next several years.

    • Stephanie

      It’s salacious and provides for political opportunism. Michigan generally has a terribly corrupt legislature, so these things come as no surprise.

      The real issue in Michigan these days is that since last year, they’ve started trying to charge ALL child pornography related cases as “manufacturing” due to a little-reported change in the wording of the law in 2012. No prosecutor was audacious (and twisted) enough to try it until last year, when the Michigan court of appeals – with a rather infamous reputation for ignoring human rights, at least for the sitting bench and as opposed to the Michigan supreme court – upheld a conviction like this.
