Reply To: The abomination of the sex offender registry

R. Arens

Sex offenders in “California and South Carolina?” Iowa needs to be added to the list of instant life registry places as well. Ya, under 903B.1, regardless of statute or circumstances of the offense, every S/O gets life parole and life registry. The only way to get off of life parole or registry is executive clemency or parole board approval after waiting 10 years after discharge from the sentence given. The United States would negotiate with a terrorist before Iowa ever let a S/O off any form of supervision. They really need to do a piece on Iowa sex offenders laws. They’re pretty barbaric here and that ain’t no lie.
