Court Halts Jessica's Law
The State Supreme Court put a halt to Jessica's Law, at least with regards to four registered sex offenders. Hopefully the ruling will end up applying to all the other registered sex offenders as well.
Jessica's Law, you might recall, was the recently passed initiative that forbids sex offenders from living within 2000 feet of schools and parks. This rules out living pretty much anywhere in some urban areas and has left many offenders homeless or forced to move to rural areas.
Worthy of note, is that one of the plaintiffs in the case was convicted as a sixteen year old of having consensual sex with a fifteen year old. Just another illustration of why we need to not just get rid of Jessica's Law, but take a look at how we label sex offenders in the first place.
I'm very proud of opposing Jessica's Law from the get- go.
