CASOMB  Feb 2021 Reports Changes in Registrant Community

The California Sex Offender Management Board (CASOMB), during its monthly meeting today, reported changes in the registrant community. Among those changes is a slight decrease in the total number of registrants to 108,106. Of that total, there are 82,526 registrants who are not in custody including 18,565 in violation for failure to register and 6,994 who are homeless.

“Although no reason was given regarding the small reduction in the total number of registrants, it is logical to believe that the reduction is based upon a large number of people reported to be moving out of the state of California,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.

Also during today’s CASOMB meeting, it was reported that there are 7,263 registrants who are currently required to wear a GPS device. All registrants, while on parole, are required to wear a GPS device for 24 hours a day and to recharge the devices twice each day.

CASOMB added two new members to its board: Heather Bowlds who represents the Juvenile Justice Department of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) as well as Guillermo Viera who represents the Department of Adult Parole Operations within CDCR.

Absent from today’s meeting was a meaningful discussion of the Tiered Registry Law that became effective last month. The only person who mentioned that law was Kerry Ramos, who represents the Office of the Attorney General. Ms. Ramos stated only that the office she represents is currently training “end users” such as local law enforcement officials regarding implementation of the Tiered Registry Law and that the office has begun hiring additional employees for the “termination unit” expected to assist with the petitioning process that begins on July 1, 2021.

Termination Unit? Don’t like the sound of that. Maybe to be headed By Arnold Schwarzenegger? 18,565 in violation.
Damn that is a lot of people.

I used to think that CASOMB would be a highly regarded commission board, but all of its statistical findings are not taken into law as scientific proof. CASOMB has already tracked it was under 1% recidivism rates once “failure to register” was taken out of the equation as a re-offense, which it is not. I just recall it being under 1% for two consecutive tracking years and then nothing more about it.

CASOMB really is pointless. Using CASOMB and Dr. Hanson’s max supervision of 17 years, then one would believe the tiered breakdown should be 17 years max for tier 3. Work backwards from there.

That’s a good question 87.000 people out of compliance where the hell did they go Mexico? and why isn’t this blasted all over the news and why isn’t Law Enforcement on the hunt to find theses highly dangerous threats to society instead of makeing taskforces to harass sex offenders on probation/parole wearing GPS monitoring devices allready or harassing people already in compliance on Halloween.
This just proves that the registry protects no one its only used for punishing people for their past crimes

Corrections.. Ah don’t you just love that word. Many have to say who really understood or understands the guidelines or do others just make it up as they go. Even a lot of this gps monitors a bit out of line. While I’m sure their is always going to be crime. Much of this crime is sort of a presuppositional type of pricking against the goads if one could say. I’m sure its hard to keep up with so many sex offense issues and different statues from the hard to the mild cases of how these offenses go down. One wonders if many states even understand the constitution today or even a form of it.

Seems to me California needs to do a bit more research/understanding before one jump into the frying pan and yes someones getting burned, or as always isn’t money is a big factor. One either intervien’s or steps up to the plate as Janice and her team are striving to do. Seems this CASCMB is a bit over and above even their understanding of this registry ordeal even with their man-made guidelines. Guess self-governing flew over the kook-coo’s nest- I’m sure their are more internet related entrapment cases than actual physical ones, course I could be wrong on that, besides who wants to be right all the time.

The sex offender underground railroad 🤣

“Termination Unit” sounds creepy af.

I have a funny feeling when Gavin gets recalled he’s going to say “F” you to California and pardon RSO’s for those who have current petition on the governors pending file . . Just saying. .

Big Question: I’m 2 days away from going to LA for a COR. 24/25 year old PC 243.4a / 17b/expunged with summary (informal) probation. Clear record. Nobody has contacted me/references/or visited my residence. If or when granted, are you automatically removed from the registry?

Thank you for the input. The comments and information mean a lot.

I think once the COR is granted, you are automatically (or the Judge) is required to remove you from the registry if your conviction. Falls within that category

There are more than 1,300 “non-compliant” registrants in Detroit and several thousand more in other parts of Michigan. Detroiters are at the very forefront of refusing to comply with these asinine laws. We need to get more registrants willing to take the risk of standing up to these illegal schemes. To view the non-compliance rate in Detroit and Michigan in general, go to MIPSOR.
