Dear Janice, I will not be able to make the meeting, but wanted to implore you, or anyone who has the ear of a CA legislator or judge, to look into moving CA PC 288.2 violations back to Tier 1 as soon as possible. I am so glad it is on the agenda at least.

I plead guilty to a single felony 288.2 charge in 1997, which was reduced to a misdemeanor halfway through my 4 year felony probation as part of the plea agreement. My victim was 16. Probation did not recommend incarceration because I was “not a danger” to the general population. They did not deem my victim hurt by my actions, physically or emotionally. My forensic psychologist opined that I was not a pedophile, (quite rightly!) I went on to register as a “no-post” for 25 relatively happy, successful years, with no re-offenses of any sort.

No one in my neighborhood seems to have stumbled across my mug shot and address on the internet as of yet, but every day that I remain in Tier 3 it becomes more likely that someone will indeed find out. I have dreaded coming home to vandalism and threats for 2.5 years and counting.

I live in a very densely-populated lower-class condo complex, home to many young couples and single moms with very young children running about everywhere. I doubt that my neighbors could even understand the charge (What exactly is “harmful material”?) or properly assess the relative lack of severity of my particular offence when compared to other Tier 3 crimes and many in Tier 2. I also share a garage with a fellow owner, who would find it very hard to sell his investment property or rent out his unit if I were a person known to be listed as Tier 3 on the registry. I have already resigned from my family business to protect their reputation and I felt I should tell my roommate (whose rental income I desperately-need), and he promptly moved out. My money is running out.

So please, Janis, kindly pass my personal situation along to someone in the CA legislature who might be able to the inspire rest of his or her colleagues to act sooner than later. Or pass my story along to an empathetic judge. I would like all of the lawmakers to better appreciate how personally devastating their 2019 “yes” vote was, (with the worse to come if I am outed), when they re-classified my 288.2 “no-post” as a Tier 3 offense, (pejoratively the “white van” tier) a quarter of a Century after the fact!

Who would argue that their decision was anything less than punitive, cruel and unusual in the most literal sense?
