ACSOL Presents to CASOMB Proposed Changes to CA Tiered Registry Law

ACSOL made a presentation today to the CA Sex Offender Management Board regarding proposed changes to the CA Tiered Registry Law.  The presentation included seven proposed changes and was made by ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.

The proposed changes are (1) reduce from Tier 3 to Tier 1 individuals convicted of a non-production felony child pornography offense, (2) clarify that courts may consider a petition for removal from the registry even if the individual does not have a tier assignment, (3) reduce from Tier 3 to Tier 2 individuals convicted of violating PC 288(c), (4) reduce from Tier 3 to Tier 1 individuals convicted of an attempted offense, (5) reduce from Tier 3 to Tier 1 individuals whose felony convictions have been reduced to a misdemeanor, (6) allow individuals assigned to Tier 3 to petition for removal after 30 years of registration and (7) allow registrants to view their profiles posted on the Megan’s Law website.

During the presentation, Bellucci invited CASOMB to join ACSOL and other organizations as an ally to ensure the proposed changes become law.  CASOMB stated it would create a committee to review the proposed changes.

Also during today’s CASOMB meeting, several state agencies made reports that included registrant statistics.  For example, the CA Department of Justice reported that the total number of registrants is 106,952 which is 1,773 fewer than reported in January 2022.  Of that total, there are 19,762 registrants in violation which is 283 fewer than reported in January 2022.  The Department of Adult Parole (DAPO) reported that there are 6,862 registrants on parole which is 374 fewer than reported in January 2022.

The CA Department of Justice also made a report regarding the petitioning process under the Tiered Registry Law.  According to that agency, a total of 3,169 petitions have been granted, 64 petitions have been denied and 1,599 petitions are pending.

If as proposed non-production felony child pornography offense was changed from Tier III to Tier I in California, how would this effect a federally sentenced individual such as myself. The California DOJ placed me in a tier III based on their guidelines, but if I were to petition for removal after 10 years for removal it is to a federal court that I would apply.

If CASOMB signs on to some or all of these proposed changes, how does that influence the likelihood of sponsored legislation to enact the changes? Would it make it easier to find backing?

Wondering – If moving Tier 3 “attempted” offenses to Tier 1 is possible – Would those assigned to a Tier 2 “Attempted” offense also be moved to Tier 1? And if so, would full details still be posted (even if Tier 1) since the 288(a) charge is what determines full disclosure?
