I believe it’s 15 years from date of sentence, but perhaps it depends on how it’s executed, or whatever.

It is a partial victory, in my view. It’s a step in the right direction. Hopefully other states will be brave enough to fix (get rid of) the registry as well.

Age is rather arbitrary. The development of a human being is different for everyone. Personally, I think so many men in their 40’s are convicted because they face a crisis around that age and react very, very poorly.

To lump everyone together though, as we all know, is “silly”.
