He has another felony or misdemeanor? Fukn stupid senseless registry. ITS PUNNISHMENT!!!

Not surprised that someone with money gets a slap on the wrist. Anyone else would have been sent to prison for years.

But …. does he donate to ACSOL ?? 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️

A slave to a barbaric master, with a beating for striking out to be free. They have my sympathy.

Get your facts straight. He moved from NY to Ca and never registered? Part of his plea required him to pay a 55k penalty? Yes, good lawyers will help your case!

Hagop learned well, from his time at G&G, studying under Mark. The best part of home detention, is that you are allowed to shop around for a company to do the monitoring; because it saves the county money, when it’s on your own dime. One year of home detention monitoring is like paying for a year of Motel 6, on top of your normal living expenses.

They will basically make him pay for his own incarceration at home. Now they can have their cake and eat it too: the carceral state without the cost.

The court “system” is all about money. From the thousands of dollars of bail they charge, even for a non-violent, first-time, sex offense, to towing charges, all the way to defense attorney fees. Then when you are sentenced, they levy thousands of dollars more in fines. Then when they incarcerate you, they slave you for 10 to 50 cents an hour, so you can work your ass off for a bag of chips by the end of your work day. On top of this, the endless strip searches, even if you’ve done nothing wrong, $30 phone calls to home, $40 gas station hamburgers during the visits, and $500 commissary “packages.”

When you get out, you are provided with a bus pass, then have to head over to the police station to register as a “sex offender” for your lifetime. An absolute insult for any American “citizen.”

The more I think about it, the “justice” system is absolutely perverted in and of itself. Quite frankly, I wish the worst karma upon the corrupt American “system.” It’s absolutely disgusting. DISGUSTING!

And this the reason Megan’s law was designed to keep you isolated broke and homeless because if you got money being on the registry is a walk in the park.
i was placed on the registry before I even learn how to drive they done a good job at keeping me from ever being successful

stay focused 😎
