Today the Judicial Council released all forms related to petitioning for removal from the ￼ California sex offender registry. The forms include the petition form and related instructions as well as forms to be completed by the relevant District Attorney offices and courts.
“The long wait is over. Forms are now available for everyone eligible to petition for removal from the state’s registry,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “Before submitting a petition, it is important to determine whether you are eligible because petitions from individuals who are not eligible will be rejected.”
In addition to being eligible based upon the conviction offense, individuals must wait until their first birthday on or after July 1, 2021 to submit their petition. For example, a person with a July 15 birthday may petition this year, however, a person with a June 15 birthday must wait until next year to petition.
ACSOL leaders Chance Oberstein and Janice Bellucci will conduct a training session regarding the petition forms on July 8 starting at 1:30 p.m. Those who participate in the live training will have an opportunity to ask questions. The training will be recorded and posted on the ACSOL website for later viewing.
