Call to action for Wisconsin registrants…
Last year the high court in Wisconsin struck down former AG’s interpretation that multiple counts on the same case constituted multiple convictions for the purpose of registration and GPS monitoring.
A bill was introduced last week that if passed would codify the former AG’s interpretation and put many people back on lifetime GPS registration. The bill is retroactive and seems like it will actually put more people on GPS monitoring than even before.
The original statue would have required lifetime GPS monitoring if a person had one of a number of triggering events. One of them was having a ‘special bulletin notification’ (SBN) issued. That is where the multiple convictions comes into play – the bill would change the qualifications for a SBN to include anyone with multiple counts in the same case. With the retroactive nature of the bill, it would likely ensnare many people in the GPS monitoring for life game.
This is the time to have your family, friends, etc. contact their senators and assembly people to speak out against this bill[Written by @WorriedInWisconsin]
