CA: Number of Registrants Increases Significantly

The total number of CA residents required to register has grown to 108,128 according to a report today given by the CA Department of Justice (CA DOJ) to the CA Sex Offender Management Board. This total represents an increase of more than 4,000 people during the past six months.

Of that total number, CA DOJ reported that there are 78,191 registrants who are not in custody but who are living in the community. That total number also includes 16,455 registrants who are “in violation” for failure to register as well as 6,697 people who have registered as transients. The number of people registering as transients has remained stable for some time.

In addition to the number of registrants living “in the community”, there are a total of 963 registrants who are patients at Coalinga State Hospital. Of that total, 571 people have been determined to be sexually violent predators (SVP’s) and the remainder are probable cause detainees. Some of the detainees have resided at the hospital for 10 years or longer.

During today’s meeting, Dr. Lea Chankin, who is coordinator of CASOMB, reported that she spoke at the Third Annual ACSOL Conference on June 15 in Los Angeles. She told the CASOMB board members that her presentation “went well.” Several board members, including Chairwoman and Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, encouraged Chankin to participate in future ACSOL conferences as well as conferences conducted by similar organizations.

    Huh. Why the support, and to what end? Even if and as CASOMB and its members present data to the Legislature, it gets ignored. At least there’s some dialogue, though, and that can only help matters.

      Yeah, it’s very strange that CA keeps working with CASOMB but seemingly never actually listen to the data that doesn’t support registration. It’s like, “Those are good stats and I’m going to let you finish, but this registry is the best thing of all time.”

    How many of these registrants no longer live in California at all? Where are the numbers for that?

    • anonymouse

      If one were to peruse the ML web site (not that one does), one would notice tons / thousands? of profiles where the photo and the current age are off by decades. Aside from all the deported people.

      And why are registrants who are incarcerated subject to PUBLIC notification?

      The ML “website provides information on registered sex offenders pursuant to California Penal Code § 290.46 so that members of the public can better protect themselves and their families.”

      From people behind prison walls? For real now?

      • Joe123

        Wow, “108,128” highly dangerous people! Why do we need to “fight terrorists” if just California alone has over 100,000 highly dangerous people? Maybe this question should be submitted to a few of these government bureaucratic agencies and demanded an answer? What do you guys think?

        • Tim

          Joe,
          Domestic terrorist = need for domestic surveillance. All about the database.

    Dr. Lea Chankin…. smh. The same person who put out a certificate of completion requirement for all casomb programs, but refuses to hold any centers accountable. Casomb recently confirmed that certification of completion will not be given to those in federal supervised release casomb programs.

    • Cody

      Same Dr. Lea Chankin who stands behind the STATIC-99R scams. And the fact the tiered registry will rely on said STATIC scams.

    This could be good news. This is definitely reaching a critical mass. The numbers are too staggering to deny that the registry isn’t working as originally intended. I surmise that the truly dangerous SO’s who are in violation simply aren’t complying or registering, while those of us who are simply trying to live a normal life are taking the full impact of the punitive and oppressive registry which won’t allow us to adapt and live a normal life. This year is an off year for elections, and the tiered registry will go into effect in two years, so this should be an ideal time for the powers that be to evaluate the massive financial waste, the negative impact on people to adapt to society, and the fact that the system needs to be modified. clearly with so many people on the registry and so many non-compliant LEA can’t possibly, and Is not, monitoring effectively. It is time to start allowing people who have gone 10 years with good behavior a path off of the registry. The state needs to slim it down. With a new governor in place, and CASCOMB seemingly somewhat interested I would say this is an ideal time to press for a reasonable reform. Get the bulk of the people on tier III, and after 10 years of offense free life let them resume a normal life. The last two presidents have asserted that America is the land of second chances. Is it, or is it not????

    Let’s hope Ca takes notice! (Positive comments). Let’s hope getting off the registry will be simple when the new law hits in 2021. I contacted (take notice) the Sex Offender Management Board to clarify how getting your charge reduced to a misdemeanor/expunged will affect your tier? They didn’t know? The response: contact your attorney? If people stay focused and positive, things will and have been happening! Negative/poorly written negative comments get you no where!

    • Dph

      Yes USA, you are factual, but it does help them vent whereas people reading may see their individual frustration as a whole on TV topics affecting them directly besides just an opinion.
      Goid point. It diesnt change the future

  6. USA

    Well stated DPH!
