California Tiered Registry Experiences (EXPERIENCES ONLY)

As of January 1, 2021 the California Tiered Registry Law became effective. In order to share information about the new law and help others with the petitions, please document your experiences with the process in the comments below.

Comments should pertain to actual experiences with the Tiered Registry only. In order to maximize the value to others, feel free to include as many details (city / county, conviction history, etc) as you feel comfortable.

All comments not directly relating to experiences with the de-registration process / new law can be added to one of the other articles about the Tiered Registry.

REMINDER: this section is for documenting ACTUAL EXPERIENCES with the Tiered Registry ONLY. All other comments should be made in the appropriate sections. Thank you for your cooperation. ***Moderator***

    Did anyone get information in their letter pertaining to if the Tier level time has passed enough to petition in July or after? My letter says Tier 2 and I’m certain enough time has elapsed, but the letter isn’t clear on that point. Any suggestions on how we can prove that enough years have passed?

    • SR @ Ditto

      Tier 2 is a 20-year wait. You start counting your time from the date of your conviction if you were granted Probation, or from the time you were released on to Parole if you were sent to prison. The time pauses if you were sent back to jail/prison for any reason, and could actually add time overall to how long you have to wait to petition.

      So… When were you convicted, and were you give probation (having to do time in county doesn’t matter) or sent to prison?

        @ SR, county time, probation over 35 years ago, I think. I know this, but the question will be how to prove it to the court. Janice was good enough to send the DOJ a letter about a year or two ago asking the DOJ to include the date of last felony conviction as required by the 290 law, and it didn’t take long for them to post that to the registry “profile.” I think that date was 1995 but would have to visit the site to be sure. I guess my point is that the DOJ should include that in the letter. Otherwise we may have to get a LiveScan and obtain a copy of our criminal history ($25 or more) but I’m not sure that would be legal evidence since the purpose is limited to correction of the record. I don’t have any of those court records but it could be possible to get a copy at the courthouse. I’m not sure this is a “experience” since it applies to the future, except maybe it pertains to the letter and it’s probably a little soon to sweat it anyway. Thanks for the reply.

      If you’ve been registering over 20 years and your birthday is before July 1, 2021 you are eligible to petition the court July 1,2021 . If you’ve been registering less then twenty years, then you must wait for the 20th year (on your birthday) to become eligible to petition the court for your removal from registration requirements. I hope that answered your question .

        I think our birthday has to be after July 1, 2021, not before. Thanks for the reply.
