ACSOL Stops Protests Outside CA Registrants’ Home

The Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws (ACSOL) has stopped protests outside a house in Fairfield, CA, where five registrants on parole were residing.  The protests were televised and included the Mayor of that town which is located between Sacramento and San Francisco.

The Mayor falsely claimed on several TV broadcasts that the registrants pose a current danger and demanded that the registrants move from the house where they were placed by the CA Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).  Registrants on parole do not pose a current danger, according to CDCR reports, which state that the likelihood of re-offense for a registrant on parole is less than one percent.

After the protests began, the manager of the home contacted ACSOL and requested assistance.  ACSOL responded quickly and sent letters to both the Mayor as well as the neighbor who organized the protests and distributed fliers with photos of all five registrants.

In its letter, ACSOL notified the Mayor and neighbor that state law prohibits anyone from threatening, harassing or intimidating anyone required to register.  Anyone who violates that law can be found liable in both civil and criminal law.  Civil penalties include a fine of up to $25,000 as well as attorney’s fees.  Criminal penalties include possible custody in a city or county jail.  The Mayor and neighbor were also provided with a copy of an excerpt from a CDCR report stating in both narrative form and in a graph that the rate of re-offense for a registrants on parole is less than one percent.  

Shortly after the Mayor and neighbor received those letters, the protests outside the home stopped and the registrants remain living at that location.  The manager of the home thanked ACSOL for its efforts stating, “thank you for your assistance with the letter to the mayor as well as the disgruntled neighbor. They were 100% effective . I have not heard about anything happening over there since the letters were written. The gentlemen in the house as well as myself are really grateful that you took the time out to help them , when you  didn’t even know them . You are much appreciated.”

Can you/ACSL please tackle the Ca Tier requirement for 3 additional years tacked on for a FTR? Either get it removed or keep it for use only for new registrants AFTER the Tier law has gone into affect? We as Registrants all ready pay a heavier price than any other “free” person. For an FTR we’re most likely handed a new Felony Conviction regardless of the situation that caused the FTR and then placed on Felony Probation for additional time. This punishment alone should be sufficient. Adding 3 years onto someone’s Registration is just vindictive and serves no purpose.

While this is excellent news, I was really hoping somebody would go there and get into legal trouble. I was also looking for the link in the post to go and view the news report of this. But of course, stopping an illegal protest, isn’t news. Keep up the great work and I hope to see more of it. Peace

Thank you ACSOL and Janice! Unbelievably great work here. This is how change is made – keep pushing forward and staying on message. We’re in IL but I know ACSOL’s efforts support us all and I will continue to support ACSOL! THANK YOU!
