Did I read right...a $30 PENALTY??

Yes I did. The fact that it is seen as a penalty, and not a fee, is enough to easily turn this law around, IF someone has the $$,$$$ to pay the lawyer fee.

Behold this is not my doctrine to stir up the hearts of men with anger one against another, but this is my doctrine that such things should be done away.

the issue of training parole officers in sexual molestation cases on illegal use of internet and should be a state wide tax base issue not a payment by the convict. Over state lines does it require the FBI? Again a federal tax base system Second it is Good to get sexting off the sex register.

At very least someone not on parole or probation should not have to pay a fee to off set supervision cost or monitoring.
