CA: Wilk sex offender bill passes Senate with unanimous vote [Senate Bill 1199]

[ 5/3/18]

A bill that State Sen. Scott Wilk, R-Antelope Valley, introduced to reform the release and placement for California sex offenders unanimously passed the Senate on Thursday.
Senate Bill 1199 would expand current protections against the ‘dumping’ of sexually violent predators into random communities. Now it would include, when reasonably possible, requiring authorities to take familial and community ties into consideration when determining where inmates convicted of registerable sex offenses are placed upon release.

    Isn’t this just a guise to restrict where a registrant lives? I thought 290 was supposed to be for only police surveillance as denoted by Kelly v Municipal? This proposal states registrant have no choice of where to live. Odd. Are registrants still under parole or probation or are they free in the community?

      @New Person, I believe this bill is aimed at those on parole and probation. Once the person completes their supervision then they can move wherever they want.

    It’ll never end until the registry is abolished. The supreme court made a horrible mistake and these are the consequences. As long as the registry exists and made public we will have these fires to extinguish. Thank you Janice and all! Lets go get em!!!!!!!!

      The language of this bill applies ONLY to registrants who have been designated as sexually violent predators and ONLY if they are released from Coalinga (less than 1 percent). Current law requires them to be released in the county where they were convicted which often means they are released in a county where they have no support (families or friends). It doesn’t often happen, but the fact is ACSOL does not oppose a bill introduced by Sen. Wilk.

    Another worthless bill….Hey we need a new general comments for May. Anyway here’s this…

    Why were these laws originally created???? I will tell you why. The mass hysteria over blacks supposedly raping and killing white women. So, the entire registration scheme, even though they may not have intended to punish when they were enacted (which I could and will contend they were intended to punish from the very start) they were also all predicated on irrational, prejudicial beliefs as well as irrational fears and hysteria brought about by the emerging mass media at the time, and the laws were being pushed through legislative process by the legislators who were playing demagogue and feeding on the fears of the populous to further their political agendas. Unfortunately, it is reemerging and repeating itself, only in order of magnitude, and this time targeting everyone convicted of a sexually related offense. But it is still based upon false beliefs, mass hysteria, pushed by mass media eager for top story headlines, and are once again being pushed by the legislators playing demagogue to further the politician’s political agendas.

    Well apparently I spoke to soon and should of researched the origins of the registry before spouting off. The begining origins of the registries is even more way out… Check it out…

    Pretty interesting…

    His bill was fair for the persons needs to services, family and friend support so that person will have a better chance. How often does a SVP get released from the CaliHotel? Just think if the person is from out of state would be good to be close to family.

    The Antelope Valley has a long history of feeling sex offenders are being “dumped” there. Of course, living in an area with a circle of support is best. But, for many, the victims (expanded definition) can demand the person on parole is not allowed to live in their county. Bottom line, politicians from the AV have been making their bones on the backs of vulnerable people and will continue to do so.

    You may agree with this particular legislation, but be advised. There are sharp teeth hidden in the smile.
