Fresno Co., CA, striking residency restrictions due to ACSOL suit

[ – 3/11/20]

Fresno County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted this week to repeal an ordinance that restricts how close convicted sex offenders can live near schools and parks — a policy California’s Supreme Court found unconstitutional.

The move by Fresno County also includes a settlement with a Sacramento-based attorney who sued over the law.

The county has joined other localities across the state who have lifted the 2,000-foot or greater buffer many municipalities required of sex offenders for more than a decade.

About 40 localities, like Santa Clarita, Lompoc and several cities in Los Angeles County, have repealed their housing measures in recent years following litigation from Janice Bellucci, who is the executive director of the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws.

@Fresno Guy

Congrats Fresno Guy, there are others there.

Congrats to SOME Freedom where you live!

This is indeed great news! I only wish it had happened years ago so we wouldn’t have had to buy our house way out in the sticks.

Great job, Janice and team! Residency restriction is unconstitutional now via re:Taylor 2015. On a tangent, that means the application of this unconstitutional law was being implemented between 2007 and 2015 (or current against counties still imposing blanket residency restriction). In the DISCUSSION section of the case, on page 22, it cites, “Such enforcement has imposed harsh and severe restrictions and disabilities on the affected parolees’ liberty and privacy rights, however limited,… ” Link to case: Two points here is that residency restriction has been identified as a disability. That disability affects liberty and privacy rights. Query: Why can’t… Read more »

I earned my PC 17B in 2000 and PC 1203.4 in 2002? I attempted a COR in 2009\OC, but denied. I’m waiting for the SB 384. The Judge in OC stated he could find no reason to deny my motion, but it wasn’t enough??? The DA was (original charges LA) dishonest, a liar and disturbing.

@USA, The judge or court should divulge why your motion was denied. Because that is the goal you need to accomplish. I would implore you to re-read your case as it is embedded in there. I was in your shoes, except it was for a felony reduction. I couldn’t find a reason why probation would deny me they said I did everything correct. Yet, it took a good lawyer to quickly identify that probation did say what it wanted from me. Surprisingly, they wanted more time to pass. Crazy. So time did pass and probation did your background check to… Read more »

@JaniceB-WOW another one WAY TO GO JANICE & TEAM!
Is this number 43 Janice? NOW if they LOSE their stupid lawsuit against the new overturns.
DON’T THEY TAKE IN ACCOUNT THE CALI SUPREME Court findings resolution? FInal Word.
they still try. Dumb governments trying to appeal to their voters consti. They will lose and we will succeed!

New, I concur. This was 2010. I was in shock. What’s not enough? I would love to speak to the Judge to clarify, but I have no idea if he is still on the bench. The biggest hassle (my situation) with the COR was that the investigators in OC questioned my neighbors? (Any problems?). I was shocked by this. They couldn’t find anything, so they where trying everything. Expunged battery/summary probation

Well played (and retorted), sir!

One more step in the right direction! It’s good to see rational people still fighting the good fight and keep towing the line with all the chaos going on around them.

To all involved – please discontinue this discussion on this forum. Thanks. ***Moderator***

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
