MA: Board wants Cosby deemed a sexually violent predator

[ – 7/25/18]

Disgraced comic icon Bill Cosby will have to register as a sex offender in Massachusetts if he returns to his sprawling Shelburne Falls estate — and state and local authorities say they will be watching for him, the Herald has learned.

Pennsylvania’s Sexual Offenders Assessment Board recommended to a judge yesterday that Cosby be declared a “sexually violent predator.”

But the 81-year-old comedian’s conviction April 26 on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in Philadelphia is sufficient for Massachusetts authorities to require him to register here if he spends four days in one month or 14 days in a year in the Bay State, state officials confirmed yesterday.

“If I were to look up the definition of a sexually dangerous person, Bill Cosby would be at the top of the list,” Murphy said. “Based on common sense, he should be a Level 10.”

“When he’s free, he’s coming back,” Murphy added. “Talk among sex offenders is Massachusetts is the best state for them to live. But the registry is the great equalizer. He should have been on it all along.”

This could get good. It might very well bring into focus for the general public exactly the difficulties of life on the registry. The public won’t care that the Cos has difficulties they want his head on a stick. It will just more clearly and publicly show that SOR is punishment and social retribution. It strengthens our argument. Welcome to our world Bill Cosby

“Talk among sex offenders is Massachusetts is the best state for them to live. ”
I m wondering where she got this source.

More proof that the registry is seen as a punitive, not regulatory, scheme, in violation of Smith v. Doe.

He was America’s favorite TV dad for decades. I have my doubts about him doing what he was accused of, solely because so many people came forward at almost the same time. If he really did do the things he is accused of, then all I have to say is that it’s a reminder that ANYONE can be a sexual predator and it can happen without around knowing. Those you trust the most are the most likely, not those on some feel good registry which is obviously and blatantly and openingly being used for punishment.

Who is contacting his lawyers to ask for money to fight the right case all the way to SCOTUS?

It is going to be interesting to see if he become involved in the RC support group?

Does this group have an lawyer liaison for each group contacting different lawyers and sending information on how to fight this stuff?
