    I’ll be there. I always look forward to them when they come to San Diego. Always very informative and I feel connected. I meet new friends, too.

  2. Carlos Flores

    My name is Carlos Flores and am making contact with your organization in hopes to stay informed on laws concerning 290 registration and SB384. I have a 288(c) conviction from almost 10 years ago (2009) which has a lifetime registration per plea agreement. I recently (June) filed for a “Proof of Service”, dismissal and was denied. I will appeal. I am also working to head off an effort to fight the SB 384 tier class/level I was matched with, Tier(3). My last request/comment is job placement as I need work immediately. I am going to make every effort to attend the ACSOL meeting is San Diego.
    looking forward to meeting members and staff.

      @Carlos Flores – Is your 288c A felony or a misdemeanor? 288C is a wobbler offense so therefore if you were charged with a felony you can have it reduced via 17b down to a misdemeanor. Once you have successfully completed that reduction, you should be either a tier 1 or tier 2. And if you have a really good attorney and depending on what county reside in you could try and have the misdemeanor dismissed and expunged via 1203.4 that being said technically a 288C is not eligible for that reduction but if you have a good attorney sometimes you can get the judge to grant it. Good luck!

        We’ve been through this…. 288(c) is indeed a wobbler, but that is immaterial. 288(c) is Tier 3, either way.

        Read the current PC 290 as it is going into effect in 2021

        Reading from the top, 288(c) would be in Tier 1 as it is either a misdemeanor (Tier 1) OR a felony, but is not listed in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5 or subdivision (c) of Section 1192.7 (also Tier 1).

        “(1) (A) A tier one offender is subject to registration for a minimum of 10 years. A person is a tier one offender if the person is required to register for conviction of a misdemeanor described in subdivision (c), or for conviction of a felony described in subdivision (c) that was not a serious or violent felony as described in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5 or subdivision (c) of Section 1192.7”

        So far so good.

        Tier 2 does not apply as it includes certain specified offenses and those listed in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5 or subdivision (c) of Section 1192.7. 288(c) is not one of those. 288(a) is in Tier 2, as it is listed in 667.5.

        “(2) (A) A tier two offender is subject to registration for a minimum of 20 years. A person is a tier two offender if the person was convicted of an offense described in subdivision (c) that is also described in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5 or subdivision (c) of Section 1192.7, Section 285, subdivision (g) or (h) of Section 286, subdivision (g) or (h) of Section 287 or former Section 288a, subdivision (b) of Section 289, or Section 647.6 if it is a second or subsequent conviction for that offense that was brought and tried separately.”

        So 288(c) would mean Tier 1 UNTIL subsection 3 which specifically lists 288(c). It makes no distinction between felony or misdemeanor.

        “(3) A tier three offender is subject to registration for life. A person is a tier three offender if any one of the following applies:
        (ix) Subdivision (b) or (c) of Section 288.”

        Additionally, Tier 1 explicitly excludes those listed in paragraph (3) / Tier 3

        “(1) (B) This paragraph does not apply to a person who is subject to registration pursuant to paragraph (2) or (3).”

        Meaning that 288(c) is Tier 3. Misdemeanor or Felony – don’t matter. Why? No idea.

        The whole tiered registry is a complete disaster. If a 62 year old raped a 5 year old before 2006 they are Tier 2. If a 26 year old hugged and kissed a 15 year old they are Tier 3.

        Same with Sen. Weiner’s current bill SB 145. A 28 year old (of any gender or sexual orientation) getting a bj from a 17 and 364 day old (of any gender or sexual orientation) gets mandatory registration, while a 25 year old (of any gender or sexual orientation) getting a bj from a 16 year and 1 day old (of any gender or sexual orientation) is subject to discretionary registration.

        Sen. Weiner may mean will, but what he has done is create new law that will be subject to equal protection litigation for years to come. Maybe it is not too late to go to law school?

        On that subject, one always needs to remember that a 26 year old hugging and kissing a 15 year old is a Tier 3 registrant, while someone torturing and killing a 2 year old is not registering at all.

        • Mr. D

          @Jesse – Yes we have been thru this before. And you’re not an attorney. And my attorney (the same one who managed to not only get it reduced but also dismissed and expunged via 1203.4) has reviewed carefully and states I’ll be a Tier 1. Another attorney I spoke with essentially concurs – 288c felony – Tier 2. 288c misdemeanor – Tier 2. No offense but I’ll go along with their insight.

        • jesse

          @Mr. D

          Of course I am not an attorney. Not only have I never claimed to be such a thing, legal advice is frowned upon by this site, per the yellow note on every page.

          And I may very well be mistaken – I actually hope to be wrong so people can get off this roller coaster from hell – but I think my detailed argument, complete with cites, deserves a better rebuttal than “that’s what my attorney told me”. It is kind of hard to interpret

          “(3) A tier three offender is subject to registration for life. A person is a tier three offender if any one of the following applies:
          (ix) Subdivision (b) or (c) of Section 288.”
          “(1) (B) This paragraph [Tier 1] does not apply to a person who is subject to registration pursuant to paragraph (2) or (3).”

          any other way. Or is there? Then again, I have never heard of even an attorney being wrong, and certainly about this 290 stuff 🙂

          So yes, sounds like @Carlos Flores will be Tier 3, as he was told. I wonder if he got any answers at the meeting in San Diego and if so if he would share.

          I don’t really care, except that, if I am correct, there will be a rude awakening come 2021 for many. For your sake and many other’s sake I really of hope I am wrong. Someone please tell me how. Peace out.

          ps. the fact remains that the tiered registry bill resulted in a terrible law. It is my opinion that ACSOL was wrong to support anything but the very first iteration.

  3. NotEasilyOffended

    I was not able to attend the meeting, which was disappointing.

    The one part of the tiered registry that will really affect a lot of people and seems to most inappropriate is:

    (R) The person was convicted of a felony violation of Section 311.1 or 311.11 or of violating subdivision (b), (c), or (d) of Section 311.2, Section 311.3, 311.4, or 311.10.

    OK, I can understand “production of CP” but the others are all non-contact crimes.
