We have an ugly bill (HB-1204) in the second house for vote. It's already passed the first house of Representatives.
The bill is two part:
- This bill is set to NOT allow a registrant from having information taken off the registry EVER! This bill will only allow a registrant to have their addresses taken off permanently! A registrant will FOREVER have to keep pictures updated for the public registry!
- This bill will allow Romeo and Juliet Offenses to be taken off the registry, but then again, from what I am understanding, just their addresses.
When I talked to several attorney's, representatives and a senator, they were trying to sugar coat it by saying that after ten years a registrant can petition to be taken off the registry! Whooopie DOO! If your pictures and names remain on the registry for life, WHO CARES?
PLEASE call, fax or write your representative in OPPOSITION to this bill, ASAP before it's voted on in the House of Senators!
