This is sickening, immoral, and evil! This basically takes the entire juvenile justice system and turns it onto its head. As a whole, the judiciary in this country should be ashamed of itself! I thank God for a few brave judges out there, and I pray we begin to see more who can grow a backbone and step up and do what’s right for a change.

We tried to help fix it. Back beginning this year Senator Carol Blood of Nebraska Legislature proposed bill LB-689 which added a clause allowing out of State minors with juvenile convictions who move here to not have to register. Our advocacy group, Nebraskans Unafraid, had registrants testifying as proponents of this bill. But the bill never made to the voting floor; died in Judiciary Committee. The reason was the Nebraska State Patrol, who is in charge of the registry, announced they had already removed from the registry the 70 or so people affected who had already moved here. This of course means they were conforming to the original Federal District and Eighth Circuit decisions.

But then this other case popped up with the thirty something guy who moved here from Colorado with a juvenile delinquency conviction. That percolated up to the State Supreme Court in July of this year. The Supes took the literal meaning of the Statute that had NOT been amended because LB-689 died ! That made the Federal court decisions null and void..

But the Attorney who had fought for the original juvenile “John Doe” tried a last ditch effort in Federal Court. However, here in this posting we have news that he had no luck, as the issue did not rise to any Federal unconstitutionality according to the Federal Judge. The State prevails. Soo… gotta reregister all the people affected !!

Election year…nuff said
