Reformation and Review of Post Sentencing Laws
Website and its contents are focused on the necessary modification and ongoing review of US Public Law 109-248 also know as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. In 2006 this law became official and most all states have substantially implemented the administration of this law in its raw form out-of-the-box, if you will, as a standard practice for monitoring and restraining ex-felons.
As an overview, you may read more from the Department of Justice online at:http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/smart/sorna.htm
Is the Sex Offender registry Constitutional?
Recently there was a federally funded study in New Jersey to see the effectiveness of Megans Law. It was found that Megans Law did not prevent any new crimes from occuring and did not lower the recidivism rate. Heres an articlehttp://www.courierpostonline.com/art…3/1047/opinion, heres another article that states the obvious http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/200…fails_t_1.html
Now we can go back and forth and throw the “Protect our children” chant, but the fact of the matter is that it has not protected children and in fact has destroyed lives of many who have tried to repair their lives of their mistake. Now I am not condoning the crimes because they are ugly in all reality, but the people that have committed these crimes, most have done their time, have served out their probation/parole. So why are they still subject to these “regulatory”, but in reality, punishments?
