Reply To: NO! We don’t need another sex offender law to fight

Tennessee registrant,

I agree with your argument. Placing someone on supervision after completion of sentence is a violation of due process, a violation of ex post facto in some cases, and is unconstitutional. I agree with fighting that scheme. What I don’t agree with is when someone is given supervision IN LIEU OF incarceration that was handed down at sentencing, they want to complain about the restrictions.

In your situation, the fight is not really to remove the restrictions of supervision, the fight is to remove the requirement for supervision without due process. I see a huge difference.
