A challenge grant in the amount of $2,000 has been offered for the purpose of challenging California’s new tiered registry law. Specifically, the funds are to be used to help create an “off-ramp” so that individuals assigned to Tier 3 would be eligible to petition for removal provided they are not convicted of a subsequent sex offense. The Tiered Registry Law currently requires anyone assigned to Tier 3 to continue registration for life.
Matching funds can be sent to ACSOL either using the “Donate” button on the home page of the ACSOL website at www.all4consolaws.org or sent to ACSOL at 1215 K Street, 17th Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814. The original grant will expire after 30 calendar days starting today.
An additional $50 heading your way. My wife and I have been very fortunate over the past year when so many have not, and I can’t think of a better way to give some back. Thank you all for everything you’ve done and do for RC’s in CA and coast-to-coast!
It was easy to click DONATE! Go, ACSOL! We level 3s appreciate everyone in ACSOL and those who contribute to fight for us, just as we will continue to fight for level 1s and 2s!
just donated. The receipt states donation to CA RSOL. This an old account?
Would you please be so kind as to provide some information in respect to this action? Is it contemplated to be filed in federal or state court? Have you identified the legal thesis and principles upon which the argument will be based?
Or is this “grant” more like a “starter fund”, in which the person putting up this money is hopeful that it will result in spurring or encouraging a presently unplanned ACSOL legal action?
I was under the understanding that ACSOL’s energies and efforts in respect to fighting the Tier 3 classification would be directed towards lobbying efforts in the State legislature sometime in the future (e.g., next year or the year after), and a legal challenge in the courts was not being contemplated. Am I wrong in this belief? Have you decided upon a new tact? I’d appreciate clarification. Regardless of wherever or whenever your efforts will be directed in the battle against the ‘Tier 3 classifications’, I of course will be more than happy to donate.
Thanks for all you do.
Donated yesterday. Thanks for anything you do to help the cause.
Excellent!! I am sending out an EXTRA $100 check today (in addition to my regular monthly donation*). 🥳🤗😁
*Hey all, every dollar counts! Please consider setting your automatic billpayer to donate every month to ACSOL. Every amount helps!!😌👍🏻
Thank you, this gives me some hope to carry on.
Went to register today. Found out I’m on tier 3 for a sting operation.
My only hope is that my recent reduction from felony to misdemeanor will also change my tier status.
There is good news to report! We are at the half way mark for donations. That means a total of $1,000 has been donated so far with only $1,000 to go. Thanks to all who have donated and for those who haven’t yet it’s not too late.
Daam that sucks… crimes involving computers/internet automatically puts people in tier3 thats f#%* up hopefully people who were able to reduce their felonys to a misdemeanor are able to petition after 20 years
Donated today. Yay!
Thank you for the challenge grant and posting this! Just donated.
Thank you to ALL who have donated to the challenge grant! We have not only met, but exceeded our goal of matching the $2,000 grant. Donations are, of course, still welcome using the Donate button on this website or sending a check made payable to ACSOL at Law Office of Janice Bellucci, 1215 K Street, 17th Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814.
When I found out that the tiered registry put me into tier 3, I sold my home and moved out of state. I was eligible for a COR, but it was denied. No surprise there. They are rarely granted in my county. I am enjoying a lot more freedom now. I am still donating today to help those who are not fortunate enough to escape.
I want to ask for clarification but, judging from the comments, most people understood, so maybe I’m off base. When I read the headline I thought ACSOL wanted to get rid of the Tiered Registry law! Reading further I was still confused because I don’t really know what a “Challenge Grant” is. Now I think I get it: ACSOL wants somebody to work on a plan for getting people off Tier 3 and will pay somebody to develop a plan. Maybe the headline should be “CHALLENGE GRANT OFFERED TO TAILOR CA TIERED REGISTRY LAW” or “DONATIONS NEEDED FOR GRANT TWEAKING CA TIERED REGISTRY LAW.” Best of luck on this noble effort.
