CO: Bill To Transform Management of people listed on the registry Pulled After Claims It Would Hurt Public Safety

[denver.cbslocal.com – 6/3/21]

DENVER (CBS4) — A bill to revamp how people listed on the registry are managed in Colorado was pulled after prosecutors accused the bill’s sponsors of putting public safety at risk.

The bill addresses everything from the conditions for release from prison to the sex offense registry. The Colorado District Attorneys’ Council says 70% of people convicted of sex offenses in Colorado don’t even go to prison. Of those who do, it says, the vast majority of them are convicted of sexually assaulting children.

Initially, the bill would have allowed them to be released without treatment, but it was amended after prosecutors sounded the alarm.

“To fundamentally talk about changing how we manage, monitor, identify evaluate, and treat people in the community should not be done without public transparency,” Jefferson County Assistant District Attorney Amanda Gall told the House Judiciary Committee.

She accused the bill sponsors of recklessly endangering public safety, “The implications for community safety issues is huge.”
