CA Senate Passes Senate Bill 145

The California Senate passed Senate Bill (SB) 145 by a vote of 25 to 3 on May 28. Ten of the Senators present at the time of the vote chose not to vote on this bill. Due to the Senate’s passage of this bill, SB 145 will move to the Assembly for a series of votes. If the Assembly passes the bill, the Governor will be provided an opportunity to sign it.

“Thank you to everyone who made phone calls and sent letters to the Senators who represent you in support of SB 145,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “Your efforts made a difference!”

If SB 145 becomes law, gays and lesbians convicted of performing some sexual acts with an individual who is within 10 years of their age will no longer be required to register as a sex offender. This is already how heterosexual individuals are treated under the law.

We will let you know when to take action on the next step in supporting this bill. Make sure you are signed up for our Action Alerts (see the right side of all our pages).

Wouldn’t this be something if it was achieved at each stop then for the pro-gay Gov to be signed!!!?
A Landmark bill decision, WOW.
Wait an see what happens next. Thank You Janice for this timely and important process and it’s status.
I am sure they’re some RV’s here that be be directly affected and possibly benefit from th he change that can occur. Including me & my Husband.

Thank you, Janice, for your leadership

Janice,

Thank you standing up for the rights of so many. You are my Families and many others HERO!!!

Thank you Janice and team for your leadership in getting this bill passed. Although this bill doesn’t affect me, I contacted my senator via online and asked that that he vote yes as you recommended. I just checked the voting roster and the senator voted yes. So I’m glad it passed the senate because it isn’t about being gay or straight. Rather, it’s about equal treatment under the law regardless of one’s sexual orientation.

JANICE, WHEN was SB145 amended for t
removal of protection of residency restrictions BACK ON after ALL your hard work adn City Suits??
Did THEY (law Enfr) ADD amend On Senator Wiener’s Bill? When and Where did it occur and who by?

You have got to be kidding me. NO!!!! ban this out law this… Having sex with babies is not ok… So if one is 20yrs and the other is 10yrs that would be all good?!?!?! You have got to be kidding me… This is only here to protect child molesters plain and simple and thats what they all are CHILD MOLESTERS

(😏 It appears that the information available to the public on http://www.legalinfo.legislature.ca.gov was last updated July 11th of 2019. Yes, that’s correct – 2019 – more than a year ago! Pathetic. 😣)

Wow! A bill passed under our noses while we are told to stay home because of a dangerous virus. This bill will make this state unsafe for children, rapists will get a slap on the hand while their life’s are ruined. By garnishing the Gay votes you threw the children under the bus. It’s wrong for an adult to have sex with a child. This state had gone third world by failing to protect the innocent children who live here.

I’m pretty sure that the penalty is still confinement either in jail or prison + probation consistent with the same criminal punishments for that type of offense so they do in fact have recourse. The bill doesn’t take away any of that. It doesn’t even likely take away the registration requirement in most cases except that a judge now has some discretion to remove such registration requirement.
Such a decision is likely to be done with a balancing test whereby the danger of the person posed to the public is less than the benefit to not having that person on a registry. That is not always an easy hurdle to overcome by an offender.
