Y A Y ! Thanks for a Re-Try and may it be Noise Revenger FREE! THANK You So Much

We hope that many people will join the webinar on July 29 because there is a lot of important information to share. We apologize for the disruptions earlier this month and believe we have found a technology that cannot be interrupted. The limiting factor is that Chance and I will not be able to speak to you, however, we will be able to answer written questions. Hope you can join us on July 29!

I signed up with the public defender, but I am sure you can’t have too much information when going through this process. I look forward to learning as much as I can.

Honestly can’t see this helping since I have 3 yrs left. Based on past experience, the whole process will change at least a few times by then. Hell, they might even rescind the whole tiered system by then .

@Way too long – then don’t petition; simple as that. No one is forcing you to file a petition, but you are forced to register. I’m sure the state and your local authorities would be more than happy to keep you on the registry for life so that they can keep those funds coming in. Plus, it shortens the line for others who want to file and get off that wretched list.

Thank you

I’m working with Lawanda Martinez at the riverside county public defenders office were preparing for a hearing in court after we file our petition she’s 99% sure the DA office is gonna demand a hearing in the name of public safety on ever case that comes through their office.

Thank you for letting us know about Riverside County, Chad. A disturbing bit of news and hopefully not a trend to be followed by other counties.

Just got off the phone with Lawanda Martinez from the riverside county public defender office unfortunately my petition is over before it even started her Superior said because of my two failure to register convictions and my DUI conviction I have to wait a little bit over 26 years and even if I reduced my 290 felony convictions to a misdemeanor i still have to wait 26 years
I dont believe that but its their
program so I wasn’t gonna argue with them and they both said on speaker phone that whatever you do don’t get in kind of trouble the DA office brought up your DUI change in the name of public safety
Got my hopes up and just like always here comes Megan’s law knocking them back down

WTF does any of that have to do with keeping you on the registries to supposedly keep you from committing a sex crime?

DUI? Since when do the scumbags care about DUI? That’s not even dangerous. That’s why there are no DUI registries.

I’m glad I retaliate for the registries almost every day. Well, it is actually every day since I make money off the criminal regimes nonstop. As long as the registries exist, millions of people must deliver concrete, real world negative consequences. No one should just be a keyboard warrior.

That will be interesting to see which county will require hearings and which won’t. Who will grant or deny the petition. If it’s more or less in one particular county over the other, shouldn’t that be grounds for discrimination?

This is the test. If one person slips after removal which could land them back on it, then the state will grandstand on it. Stats be dammed. They’re going to make it a hard road to go and hearings should be expected as the norm. This is a battle within a war and it’ll be hard to win but very possible to be victorious. Learn the enemy as Sun Tzu said in Art of War. This is no different.

I do hope ACSOL has the resources to track all the petitions per county/city per DA and judge with their reasonings for denial in a database. This would be the best way to expose those DA’s that will demand a hearing on every petition to reveal the abuse under the color of law.

We have now finalized what technology we will use for this training. In order to participate in the training by computer or by phone, you will need to click on the link above and sign up. After you sign up, an access code will be sent to you. You must sign up ahead of time as you will not be able to sign up the day of the training.

Hey janice if you have time I know ur a busy person but can u send or contact riverside county paralegal Lawanda Martinez who runs the Fresh Start program and ask her if its true that even if you do get your failure to register charges reduced to a misdemeanor you still have to do the extra 3 years for every felony failure to register conviction because I never read that anywhere and where does she get that information was it from the District Attorney’s Office or did she just pull that out of thin air because I’m a sex offender cuz I thought the judge makes the final decision.

Wow! I concur. The DUI isn’t serious, but why 2 failures to register? We knew this law was going into affect 2-3 years ago? Why haven’t you attempted to get your charges reduced to misdemeanors and expunged? Dui expunged? I killed it years ago and got my charge reduced pursuant to 17b/later expunged and I even did a 858.1 on my own. It wasn’t easy. I even filed a COR in OC and it was shot down! Then, after spending hours reviewing the new law and realizing we have a very liberal DA in LA and noting a COR would still get me off the registry up until June 30th of this year, I had my COR granted. Guys, you have to move fast. I’m off the registry/dodged a bullet and I didn’t have to deal with the asses in OC! I’m now free and clear and in the process of obtaining my professional license again. Get moving.

Does anyone have info on where Kern County stands on the petitions?

Guys/gals, I filed my COR in OC years ago and the DA was nuts. I almost got it done. I had my COR granted in LA! I’m still in shock. I know they ran a background check, but it was very clear. None of my references where contacted. I highly recommend getting (if possible) your charges reduced to a misdemeanor and expunged. If you have a detainment. 858.1! I say go for it. File your petition, write a letter to the judge and be respectful. My Attorney had no clue the COR would remove me from the registry? If your in LA, move now! I even spoke (I was reading the laws/calling people) to the 2 LA paralegals and neither knew the law? Just do it and I doubt (unless you have multiple issues) they will deny your request. My neighbor walks his (LA county chief DA for one of the courts.true story) every night. I asked him details/I said my friend was filing a COR. Like the attorney who represented me/unless they (quote) find a dead body, your request will be granted. If you live in LA county, run to the court snd file your petition now!!’

@TMZ – How did you get the 858.1? You are supposed to be factually innocent and no accusatory pleading on file. Did you file yours before June 27, 2016?

Anyone who reads TMZ’s post should know that the filing and granting of the CoR on or after July 1, 2021 will not relieve you from the duty to register. You will need to petition for relief through the new tier process. It may be beneficial to still request a CoR so it can be submitted with the registry petition as stronger support for removal.

By the way, I had posted last month that DoJ was requiring me to register even after having the CoR granted last October. I had a live scan done and apparently the DoJ didn’t update their records to show that I had a misdemeanor and expungement. It has been corrected, and just yesterday, I received my official notice stating that my requirement to register has been terminated. (Thank God!) Make sure you know what is on your livescan and if anything needs to be corrected, be sure to get it fixed.

How did you get this corrected with the DOJ? Per e-mail?

Yes, I sent them an email along with attachments of the judge’s order granting the 17b and 1203.4 and a copy of the relevant law that states that I be relieved from the duty to register.

That’s nuts. You can’t obtain a COR, unless your charges where expunged. My COR had bold letters stating I was no longer required to register and I obtained a letter via the Department of Justice re-confirming this. I was detained in LB by mistake on one occasion/never charged with anything. Prior, I had my charge 16b/expunged in LA and I filed my 858.1 in LB because of a detainment/not charges related. The Sgt signed it and there you go. I’ve filed 17b, expungements, 858.1 and even a COR in OC! /not granted: I had representation for my COR in LA earlier this year/obviously granted and like yourself, happy yo be off. I contacted both registration locations and the clerks confirmed: congrats! Oh wow, your removed.? No actual LE had /has ever called me to conform this.

After I found out I have 5 more years on the registery I quit my job put in my 30 day notice selling my car buying a van or suv and leaving California my girlfriend is gonna be pissed but the situation is to complicated to even explain anymore I guess I’ll just be a vagabond.

Wow. What’s your charges? Resolution? Parole? Prison? Probation? I get it

I’m sure I missed this somewhere, but what happens if your tier assignment is still TBD? Also, it says that you have to serve the county DA in the county you were convicted in, what if it’s Federal Court? Does anyone know?

Would this session be recorded and be available later also? Or do we have to sign up to get a recording?

The recording will be available soon and will be in the post above.

Unfortunately, I will be working during the meeting. Will there be any kind of a document or a recording available for those who cannot attend? A written summary with details in the right places would be enormously helpful to many, including those who arrive here after the meeting. Thank you for everything you are doing.

The recording will be available soon and will be in the post above.

This DOJ Information Bulletin may or my not be helpful. Evidently one of the reasons, if not the sole reason, to submit the petition to LE in is for them to determine any tolling.

At about 45:00 minutes into it, are you suggesting the petition law should be changed to consider other non-sex crimes in the rap sheet?

It’s unfortunate that in California, we still have to “petition” off the registry. In some other states, if you are Tier I or Tier II, the registration obligation terminates automatically — usually at the 10, 15, or 20 year period. I feel that what’s going to complicate this further, at least for some of us, is the whole “risk-assessment” shenanigans. I’m talking about the Static-99R, SARATSO, etc.

I don’t know… the whole ‘petitioning’ process, “tiering,” with the pseudoscience ‘risk-assessment’ process, seems overwhelmingly scam-ish.

In fact, I’m just going to outright say that sex offender registration, and the process to get off Megan’s List, is 100% scam.

In 2017 the law was written to be automatic, but… changes.

FYI: When I registered in Oakland California on the 23rd of July, the new form CJIS 8050 was given to me.

It was almost as if they don’t want to have to deal with me anymore.
