Please help understand where the fire is? I am a RSO who was put on before 12/20/2012 so the Commonwealth vs Muniz and the Commonwealth vs Neiman decision apply to me personally, yet I fail to see where the fire is. Why can’t we wait 6-12 months? Most of us, not all, only report every 12 months anyway.
You have to understand these cases are not just about us (those who were put on BEFORE 12/20/2017) These cases set the stage for the ultimate fight: The very existence of the registry.
I truly believe within the next 3-5 years there will not be a Megans Law registry, or if there is it won’t be public.
That is the key sticking point in my mind. If the registry was for Law enforcement only, I couldn’t see how we could challenge the registry. This is why in NY the registry is NOT public. Only Law enforcement can access it. You have every right to go down to the police station and asks, but who is going to do that? No one unless you pissed someone off…..
