CA: San Diego Officially Rescinds Sex Offender Law

[ – 1/22/20]

The city of San Diego has agreed to remove a law that restricted potential living locations for registered sex offenders who are no longer on parole for their crimes.

The decision was part of a legal settlement that officially puts an end to the city’s Child Protection Act of 2008.

The law prohibited all registered sex offenders regardless of parole status from living less than a half-mile from schools, parks, and other public places. In 2009 the city decided to no longer enforce the Child Protection Act due to potential constitutional issues.

Wonderful news! One small step at a time and on to the next one.

This is all Janice. This is her case. God Bless you Janice. Thank you!!!

Congratulations Janice! Thank you again for all your hard work and tireless efforts!

Hopefully attorney fees were commensurate with the amount of time Janice and co. put into this process. Well done!

Congratulations and Thank You, Janice, and ACSOL!
Hey, City of San Diego, make that check payable to ACSOL, and don’t forget the commas after every third zero!!!!

Ah, yes, I’m now one step closer to my Point Loma dream home. Thank you, Janice!

Any progress IS progress so stick with it. Most importantly be strong.

Just a reminder for San Diegans that right before the Federal Judge ruled the ordinance unconstitutional, the City increased their attorney’s budget from $50k to $150k – to defend an unconstitutional law, against the advice of their own attorney.

Something to consider next election….

So, you can have a expunged sex offense from a massage parlor and be banned from living in certain areas? Prior? This wasn’t just child related?
