Law eliminating lifelong registration for sex offenders heads for Brown’s OK

THIS MUCH I KNOW–On September 16, the California Legislature approved a bill that would create a tiered system for the state’s sex offender registry. The bill, SB-384, is expected to be signed by Governor Brown.

Authored by Senator Scott Wiener(D-San Francisco) and co-authored by Senators Joel Anderson (R-Alpine), Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), and Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley), was sponsored by Equality California, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and the California Sex Offender Management Board. SB-384 was endorsed by both the California Police Chiefs Association and various county sheriffs.

The bill has been the subject of controversy, among lawmakers and constituents alike. At first glance, many believe this is a weakening of laws . . . (Source)
