Reply To: The abomination of the sex offender registry


Wendy, is it true that in Louisiana the registration fee is obscenely high with NO provision for the fee to be waived in cases of indigence/hardship? I read some time back that many times sex offenders coming out of prison can’t afford the fee and end up being re-arrested for failure to register even though they had no way to pay the fee. I thought debtor’s prison was outlawed long ago. I guess if one is a sex offender it’s another case of the state saying, “Yeah, it’s rigged to put you back in jail and is unfair, but then again f___ you because you’re a sex offender and we could care less about being fair with the likes of you!! Besides, we never wanted your sorry hyde out of prison in the first place, so back you go!!!”
