CA Department of Justice Assigns Tiers to 9,000 Additional Registrants

The California Department of Justice (CA DOJ) has assigned tiers to more than 9,000 individuals required to register during the past seven months.  As a result, there are up to 9,000 additional registrants who are now eligible to petition for removal from the registry.  

ACSOL filed a lawsuit on January 5, 2023, in Sacramento Superior Court requesting that the court order CA DOJ to assign all individuals required to register to a tier.  At the time the case was filed, more than 12,500 registrants lacked a tier and therefore could not petition for removal from the registry.

According to a legal document filed on behalf of CA DOJ, there are currently 3,385 registrants who lack a tier assignment.  Given the rate of tier assignments, all registrants are expected to receive a tier by December 31.  

“This lawsuit is producing the desired results, that is, the California Department of Justice has significantly increased its efforts to assign registrants to a tier,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  

Individuals who have not yet received a tier assignment can directly request a tier assignment from CA DOJ by sending that request by email to

That is great to close the gap to 3,385 or 3,500, depending on whose numbers you believe. However, what is the hold up on closing that gap even further to those who have yet to be released and assigned on the way out?

Hopefully in the future everyone will have a chance to get off the registry and get on with their lives. People always say life’s short live your life to the fullest, well that’s kinda hard when your on the registry.
Hopefully I make it to my birthday next year so I can petition to get off the registry, because I haven’t been feeling to good lately this is starting to take a toll on me mentally and physically
