CA: CASOMB Reports Significant Increase in Number of Registrants


The number of individuals required to register as a sex offender in the state of California continues to grow rapidly, according to the CA Sex Offender Management Board.  The current number of registrants in the state is 108,970, an increase of about one thousand people in only five months.

“The rapid growth in the number of registrants in California must stop,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “A significant part of this growth is made up of individuals convicted of offenses involving unlawful images, including teens who are viewing photos of their peers.”

Of the total number of registrants in the state, there are about 70,698 who have been released from custody and are currently living in the community.  Of that total, there are 16,582 who are “in violation”, primarily because they no longer reside at the address provided to law enforcement.  In addition, there are 6,778 individuals who are considered “transients” because they are homeless.  All “transient” registrants are required to register with law enforcement every 30 days.

The number of registrants on parole in California is currently 6,414 and each of those individuals is required to wear a GPS device every day, 24 hours a day, that tracks their location.  GPS devices must be charged twice a day and each charge takes about an hour.

The registry is such an excellent deterrent, that’s it’s growing like a balloon in a circus! I hope a needle will be along soon.

Well, we can certainly see why the politicians want to do what ever they can to keep registrants from communicating and uniting. We are quite a potential political power. Now if everybody would donate a bit to ACSOL then we will indeed be an unstable political force.

Are all parolees required to wear a GPS or just paroled registrants?

It’s sad that the number continues to rise and not many get off the registry that restricts liberty.

Btw, are truly “released from custody”? Being on probation there were part to it: 1) in-person check in, 2) restrictions to follow, and 3) visits to your residence from law enforcement.

So far, I have, like many other do, have: 1) in-person re-registration, 2) restrictions to follow, and 3) get compliance check (which includes getting your signature) from law enforcement at my residence.

Are you sure we’re “released from custody”? It doesn’t feel like it. It feels like probation all over again with all three components being imposed upon me.

My response will likely annoy some folks, but sadly, our progress fighting against the Registries and their many, many accompanying restrictions has been a slow, uphill battle.
For that reason alone, I say “Wonderful! Keep growing the Registry!!” If California (or America’s) Registry multiplies 10-fold ….. when EVERYONE has a son, brother, father, uncle, friend, co-worker on the Registry …. maybe THEN the public and the politicians will start paying attention!! Either that, or the whole damn thing will continue to become increasingly unwieldy, exceedingly costly and even more ridiculously bureaucratic.

The National Center for Mission and Exploited children used to publish national registrant numbers, by state, semi-annually. I can’t seem to find the most recent edition. Anyone?

Its because we have a EVIL Government here in CA that wants EVERY Citizen on some sort of a registry to TRACK them. CA has themselves to BLaME ! Just like they should be held LIABLE for every murder committed against a 290 because they are on a PUBLIC Webpage, when the STATE has to pay MILLIONS in wrongful death suits they will abolish it. !


How has it been sad and hopeless for you? Come on tell us.

I bet alot of us could either relate or been through it.

Either way you’re not alone in this.

CASOMB is not a friend. CASOMB is the same organization that props fake “science” like the polygraph, Static 99R Scam, and the overall necessity of the registry (with sometimes dizzying qualifiers to get off the registry under the upcoming law). The CASOMB “treatment” requirements are peddled because of the deep-rooted conflicts of interests in the organization. The “increase” in registrant population is not only to blame on the politicians, as well as population majority, but also CASOMB itself — which does not outright condone the registry, but supports it, imposing it on a person for several years/decades after release, and even has the audacity to peddle fake sciences to target “high risk” folks using same said ‘science.’ Of course, CASOMB has evolved itself to play two-face, sly, and covertly—in better covering up its sickening under layer of corruption.

“Facts” that come out of CASOMB, I am particularly skeptical of.

Very troubling! I wonder how many have been on the registry 20 plus years? Crime free? Still registering with expunged records? Registering with misdemeanors? How many truly pose a threat?

I am one of the 108,970 registered sex offenders in CA. I was released from prison in March 2019, and am currently living as “transient” in Orange County. I’ve lived in L.A. since 2008, and moved to OC for one year when I was arrested and convicted. OC is my County of last legal residence, and I am “stuck” here, even though i am a full-time student at Los Angeles City College, and am a Screen Actor – the only job opportunities I have are in L.A. County. I am currently living in an extended stay hotel, and quickly spending my savings.

I seek help and information about resources to help me find an apartment in Hollywood 90028. My Parole Agent said that if I can be approved at an apartment in 90028, he will transfer my parole to L.A., as a favor. I have applied at 9 different apartments, and have been denied at all, due to my conviction.

I am getting desperate. If I can’t find an apartment in Hollywood, I will have to start living out of my car in OC.

Any suggestions for finding an apartment in 90028?

It will continue to grow; the number probably rises daily. I’ve read so many articles in my local paper about people arrested for sex offenses. You can bet they are not on the registry, either; otherwise, the article would clearly state it and make it a headline. I’d say for every 20 articles on a sex offense that I’ve read (most of them for CP), only one will be about the accused already being on the registry.

Well written story NPS. The ex relationships outing you is low! Not cool. I travel pretty freely (expunged/MBA). I’ve really had no issues. You can still travel to multiple countries, but they will check you out upon re entering the country. I’m unaware of you have a market on your passport. Jay, you don’t mess around in OC. You would be much better off in LA!! I highly suggest you relocate. Do they do background checks when you rent an apartment??

The rise is probably due to it being easier for prosecutors to convict people for misdemeanor “touch offenses” and use the lower requirements to get people “in the door” and subsequently screw them for probation violations or other bs nonsense.

Coupled with victim protections like Marsys law you can be accused and convicted of a “touch offense” that never happened and they’ll play it out as a “sexual assault”. There may not have even been a victim, just a name replaced by ” the People of the State of …” and a face used at trial to convince the jury.

Dark times ahead if that’s true. Imagine being forced to take sex offender classes and pay restitution to…a phantom. You would be forced to admit to something you didn’t do just to get certified.

And the restitution? It goes straight to the “victims compensation fund” and then used for “misc expenses”.

This is out of Germany, so does not directly apply to us…yet is an example of where we might wish to go with the registries, ect. (and this involves a murderer!)
German murderer wins ‘right to be forgotten’

A German man convicted of murder in 1982 has the right to have his name removed from online search results, Germany’s highest court has ruled.

The constitutional court in Karlsruhe ruled in favour of the man, who was handed a life sentence for murdering two people on a yacht in 1982.

He was released from jail in 2002 and says he wants his family name to be distanced from his crime.

The ruling could force publications to restrict access to online archives.
What was the case?

The man was onboard the sailing ship Apollonia in the Caribbean when he shot and killed two people and severely injured another during a row.

A book and TV documentary were made about the case.

ALL of us would love to have a right…”to be forgotten.”

Best Wishes, James I

I’m not surprised that California’s Megan Law registry is continuously growing at a very fast rate…
can you imagine how much money law enforcement gets in funding thats how they buy all the kool new technology they use to track sexofenders
Everybody on Californias Megan’s Law website is being track with GPS monitoring through their phones it’s just like wearing the ankle bracelet that the parolees have to wear
and there’s detectives in your jurisdiction that gets paid just to watch your phone movements they could even read your text messages so never texts anything incriminating never stay anywhere too long
and when the new California tier law comes into effect they’re going to need fresh bodies fresh game to hunt…. Law Enforcement is tired of knocking on old people’s doors who can barely walk to do compliance checks or going to the same house over and over again just to find out the offender is still in compliance and has been for 25 years
the state is tired of wasting money on these registrants they want new bodies young people to Chase people who aren’t that familiar with sexoffender laws who they can snare in there little failure to register traps it’s all about money

“ALL of us would love to have a right…”to be forgotten.”” Yup.

People need to stay positive and be grateful! Think about where would we be if this website didn’t exist! Donate! I think the tier system will clearly bring about changes. It’s clearly not perfect, but let’s stay focused! 3 items. 1. How will you be assigned tiers? Original conviction? What if your plea was reduced to a misdemeanor? Expunged? 2. What if you never took the Saratso? 3. How easy will it be to process this?

@ Just Gotta Ask – Regardless of whether Frank is required to register, I will continue to be a zealous advocate for those who remain on the registry. Frank is a good friend and the reason I began my work as an advocate for this cause, however, my efforts are not directly tied to Frank or to any other person on the registry. On a related note, we currently have two board members who were required to register in the past, but who were granted Certificates of Rehabilitation. These individuals have stayed on the board of directors and continue to work in support of those who are still required to register.

The whole process is similar to the civil rights movement. I don’t think the registry will just disappear. It’s going to take one step at a time. Clearly, the tiered system isn’t perfect. How will the static 99 be performed? I’ve never had one? Do you have the opportunity to get your charged reduced to a misdemeanor? Expunged? Everything will help!
