ACSOL Leads Lobby Day 2019 in State Capitol

ACSOL led about 40 registrants, family members and supporters in Lobby Day 2019 in the CA State Capitol.  The participants were organized into 6 teams led by Team Leaders experienced in lobbying the state legislature.  Lobby Day 2019 included twenty-eight scheduled meetings in the offices of newly elected and Public Safety Committee members in both the Assembly and the Senate as well as at least a dozen unscheduled meetings in the offices of elected officials who represent districts in which the participants reside.

“The two primary purposes of Lobby Day 2019 were to educate the newly elected officials about the facts regarding the state’s registry as well as to request support for modifications to the Tiered Registry Law,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.

The requested modifications included moving downward from Tier 3 those convicted of possessing, distributing and producing illegal images.  This request is consistent with federal guidelines which recommend that those convicted of possessing illegal images be placed in Tier 1 while those convicted of the remaining offenses be placed in Tier 2.

In addition, the group requested that judges be provided discretion to consider removing individuals from Tier 3 of the registry after 30 years provided that they have not committed a subsequent sex offense.  This request is consistent with existing law in 15 states.

Finally, the group requested support for repeal of an existing law that prohibits registrants from viewing their profiles on the Megan’s Law website.  Violations of this law could lead to a fine of up to $1,000 and/or up to six months in jail.

“In order to prepare their petitions to request removal from the registry in 2021 and beyond, registrants need to have access to information on their profiles,” stated Bellucci.

ACSOL expects to return to the State Capitol in March to further promote its requests.
