Two superior courts in Los Angeles county have granted petitions submitted on behalf of two different registrants. The first petition was granted on Nov. 5 in the San Fernando Valley court house to a registrant convicted of Penal Code section 243.4 whose tier had not yet been determined. This registrant was represented by ACSOL President Chance Oberstein.
The second petition was granted today in the downtown Los Angeles courthouse to a registrant convicted of Penal Code section 288(a) and assigned to Tier 2. This registrant was represented by ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. In both cases, the District Attorney did not object to the petitions.
In addition to the petitions granted in Los Angeles county, it is reported that 22 petitions have been granted thus far in San Diego county. That total includes petitions submitted by the public defenders office on behalf of registrants convicted of Penal Code section 288(a).
Nice. Congratulations to all!
Congratulations! Thank you team ACSOL!
Congrats to ALL!
The momentum is building!
Once tens of thousands of registrants are released from the tyranny of the registry and the public sees that there is NOT a huge wave of sex crimes, then there will be hope to change the registry to start allowing us level 3’s off.
What was the basis for the appeal for the 288(a) as that was an attempt (664) and working with LA Public Defender and would like to make a move from Tier 2 to Tier 1 and with a COR I would be able to now get off the Registry
Just out of curiosity, are Chance and Janice donating their time for these petitions????
Man this is crazy, these usually hands on 288(a)s (which includes children of all ages under 14) are getting off the registry when the 664/288(a) with the added 288.2 simply for talking to them online about meeting in person are not.
Thanks for all you do I’m hopeful one day Virginia will have some positive news. I’m so happy for everyone who is free.
its sad though that people in CA that have a pc311 are LIFERS ;(
Congratulations to these two that Petition for removal and was granted. Great work and time from Attorneys Chance Oberstein and Janice Bellucci. Excellent Attorneys who get great results. Also, I would like to hear if any Petitions for removal have been granted from San Bernardino County and if they were TBD. Anyone have difficulty with this County?
I petitioned July 31st for relief of registration, it’s been over 4 months now, im wondering is this normal? is there a way to check on my status? the courts sent me to the counties public defenders office in which I handed my relief forms? even if I had to pay an attorney *I would * atleast I would know something & with updates, and all honesty, it would be worth every single cent *GOOD LUCK TO ALL*
I just donated $100.00
Im in San Diego and was assigned to Tier 3. My charges are 288(a) and 288.2(b). My attorney had determined I should be in Tier 2 and qualify for 10 year exception.
I don’t know why I’m in Tier 3. It seems the DOJ can just place anyone in any tier regardless of charges?
I see 288.2 is in Tier 3 but why would 288(a) be in Tier 2 when it’s a worse offense? These laws make no sense.
GS, my petition proceedings were at the San Fernando Court House. I’ve been to VN Court house on other matters and I could b wrong but I’ll give it jab. I’m assuming theyre requiring a stamp from the clerk that’s on the second floor, criminal line. Thats we’re alll cases are filled. Once it’s filled they will contact your attorney with a court date and court room #. I hope this helps
