From the joint AG response to the proposed changes to the MPC: “Further, the proposed removal of online enticement and crimes related to child sexual abuse material from the registration requirement belittles the seriousness of these offenses and their impact on victims. These crimes are not victimless; they cause severe and long-lasting harm – especially to child victims. Not only do these proposed changes completely disregard the victims of these atrocious crimes, they also leave open the opportunity for those previously convicted of these crimes to hide in plain sight while continuing to seek access to children to perpetrate hands- on offenses.”

So, Internet crimes against children are especially harmful to child victims. This is the utter tripe our government writes.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Even if times are hard, I still want to spread that holiday cheer even if for a day. Hope everyone is safe and sound. Many prayers out to all.

Thanks SR. Just seems since so many AGs are against the MPC change, something could come out of it. In sure if anything happens towards any registry relief, this forum will be the first to convey. Merry Christmas all.

Well, here is something stupid:
Barberton council takes aim at sexual predators, limiting where they can live in city

There was no comment section below the article, so I wrote to the reporter, pointing out the absurdity of the residency restriction as would have had no actual effect on the problem they sought to address. The registrant could live 10 miles from town and still spend every day hanging out at the Lake Anna Park. The “protagonists” of the story seemed very self-congratulatory, entirely unaware of the pointlessness of their newly-enacted restriction.

Oh no, here we go again:

Scientists Have Identified The Driving Force Behind Your Darkest Impulses

“Here, knowledge about a person’s D-factor may be a useful tool, for example, to assess the likelihood that the person will re-offend or engage in more harmful behavior.”

Yes, let’s punish everyone because some may be likely to offend. Maybe they will link up with those administering polygraphs and plethysmographs.

The governor in my state of Texas publicly stated a few months ago that under his leadership the state will stop all rapes. I am confused. If the state has this power, why hasn’t the state stopped all rapes years ago as this is not his first year in office?

Holding those accountable in their workplaces of child sex abuse
People who were sexually abused in Colorado when they were children can, as of Jan. 1, 2021, sue the institutions that hid the abuse or did nothing to stop it. That’s the result of SB21-88, which applies to people, not just those living in the state, who were abused within government entities, schools and private institutions. The law caps how much victims can get from the lawsuit at $1 million from private entities and $387,000 from governmental entities.

SB21-73 is a companion law also going into effect in the new year that removes the statute of limitations for child sex abuse lawsuits, but it does not apply retroactively. Previously, survivors had only six years after they turned 18 to sue their abusers.
At the time of the bill signing for SB21-88, sponsor and state Rep. Dafna Michaelson Jenet, a Commerce City Democrat and abuse survivor, said: “Obviously you can really not ever put closure on sexual abuse that happened to you as a child — I think that that stays with you. However, if we can give them their day in court, their time to build some type of resolution, I think we’ll be doing something really important for the survivor community.”

There’s a great article over on the FAC site. Looks like I may have found a new home unless the rest of the country follows suit.

Please visit the article on NARSOL’s website titled “Equality should be for everyone in New Jersey” and in particular sign the petition.

So how’s this for a New Year’s Eve surprise… I finally got my tier letter. I’m a tier 3.

I had a 288.2(A)(1) felony (it’s a wobbler and I believe the misdemeanor version does not require registration) no contest in 2015. I took the plea because it was the best way to move on. I played their game like I was supposed to.

I terminated my 5 year probation early in 2018.

In 2019 the court reduced the felony to misdemeanor per 17b, at the same time it was dismissed per 1203.4.

I figured I would do my certificate of rehab in 2025 and be done with it.

But now with Tier 3 what happens next? Shouldn’t I be a Tier 1 with the 1203.4?

Also, I’ve never been listed on the public site, will I now be listed? They changed the deal. Not being listed was the reason I took the plea back then.

Is there anything I can do?

What a way to start the new year.
