RM292: Justice Misguided: How a Fabricated Statistic Shaped Sex Offender Laws

Our program tonight goes over the myth of “Frightening and High”. Politicians, leveraging unfounded fears of high sex offender recidivism, have crafted oppressive laws. These were upheld by the Supreme Court, relying on a debunked 80% recidivism rate from a 1986 article, causing widespread harm to registrants.

RM291: Are You Afraid Of An Invisible Boogeyman?

[1:23] Question from a listener who hopes for parole release this year and intends to challenge the Texas PFR registration statute, believing it unconstitutional like Roe vs. Wade. He perceives attorneys’ reluctance to challenge it due to fear of public backlash, but he himself is unafraid.

[11:27] A comment from a listener on YouTube thinks that this podcast doesn’t care about all criminal justice reform, but only PFRs. Which, if this individual listens to more than a few soundbites, they’ll learn otherwise.

RM290: The Nuts & Bolts of the Petitioning Process in California

[1:27] Navigating the termination of sex offender registration in California involves assessing eligibility based on meeting the mandatory registration period, having no pending charges, and being classified as a “Tier Three – Lifetime” registrant. Petitioning is possible even with out-of-state convictions, given compliance with the relevant tier’s mandatory minimum registration requirements. Individuals placed in a tier-to-be-determined category by the California Department of Justice (CA DOJ) can proceed with the petition once their tier is clarified. Essential documentation, including a Tier Designation Letter and proof of current registration, must be obtained from the registering law enforcement agency. Key California Judicial Council forms are necessary and accessible online or from local courts. The entire process, from completing the petition to serving relevant agencies, takes 120 days, with potential outcomes including summary denial, grant if unopposed, or a hearing if opposed by the District Attorney. Legal representation is advisable in case of opposition, allowing effective advocacy through the integration of statutory and case law with a current risk assessment. This concise guide offers a quick overview for individuals seeking relief from the sex offender registration requirement in California.

[36:53] Sylvia is seeking insights on a case from New Jersey and its parallels with changes in California’s registry laws. They highlight the impact of the new tiered registry law, SB384, removing the possibility of relief through a Certificate of Rehabilitation (COR). The listener questions the retroactive application of the law, emphasizing the extended waiting period from seven to twenty years for their fiance’s offense. They express curiosity about the situation and request the host’s opinion.

[44:51] The Idaho Legislature considers a bill introducing the death penalty for lewd conduct with a minor under 12, sponsored by Rep. Josh Tanner and committee chairman Bruce Skaug. The bill aims to amend existing law to allow capital punishment in specific circumstances, sparking debate.

RM289: Protecting Your Liberties: Mastering the Art of Not Speaking to the Police with Chance Oberstein

In this episode of Registry Matters, we were joined by Chance Oberstein. Mr. Oberstein is a criminal attorney representing clients throughout California. Since starting practice, he has handled hundreds of cases involving misdemeanor and felony crimes at the state and federal level. Today, his primary focus is sex crimes and post-conviction relief. Mr. Oberstein is highly trained in this complex area of the law and has had many years of experience negotiating with prosecutors, litigating in court, and obtaining exceptional case outcomes. Also, he is the former president of The Alliance for Constitutional Sexual Offense Laws.

[3:14] Talking to the police is bad. Larry provides several reasons why one should not talk to the police, emphasizing that even innocent individuals may face risks in doing so. Some of the key points from Chance include the idea that the police may misinterpret or selectively include statements in their reports, lack the authority to negotiate beneficial deals, and that anything said can be used against the individual. Larry also exposes common tricks the police use to encourage cooperation, such as false promises, lies, and the illusion of having evidence. Overall, the advice is to remain silent, assert the right to remain silent and seek legal counsel to handle interactions with the police.

[48:43] Bruce Henry versus Ron Abernathy: The case involves Bruce Henry, a person convicted of possession of child pornography, challenging Alabama’s PFR registration statute that prohibits PFRs from residing with their own biological children. The court recognizes the fundamental right of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children, emphasizing that this right is deeply rooted in the nation’s history and tradition. Alabama’s sex offender scheme is criticized as comprehensive and debilitating, and the court upholds Henry’s right to reside with his son despite the state’s restrictions.

RM288: Textual Tightrope: Analyzing State Boundaries in Registry Cases

In this episode of Registry Matters, we feature The State of North Carolina v. Larry Fritsche, where the court considered whether time spent on another state’s sex offender registry counted toward the 10-year requirement for early removal from North Carolina’s registry. Despite Fritsche’s 13 years on Colorado’s registry, the court ruled that only time registered in North Carolina applies. The decision, in line with a previous case, is defended as a reasonable textual interpretation, emphasizing legislative intent to protect the public. The script notes Fritsche’s strategic moves and highlights the court’s reliance on legislative silence over 12 years as a significant factor in its decision.

RM285: The Truth Will Not Set You Free

[5:50] We criticize radio host Dan Bongino. Larry finds him mean but listens to for conspiracy updates. It recounts Bongino’s reaction to a university president’s response on harming a group and challenges him to condemn those targeting sex offenders, alleging hypocrisy. Larry expresses skepticism about conservatives and liberals, highlighting media business models favoring popular opinions. The text briefly mentions Liz Cheney’s experience in Wyoming politics.

[12:36] What is the difference between “substantive” and “procedural” due process rights, referencing a legal case (Hitt v. McLane) that made a distinction between the two.

[26:31] We discuss a video involving an incident on Tybee Island, Georgia, where a woman is confronted by police regarding a lewd act on the beach. The hosts analyze the woman’s response to the police, pointing out moments where her statements may have weakened her position. They discuss legal strategies, such as the possibility of suppressing her confession and the challenges of negotiating a plea deal. Larry also mentions the impact of technology on police discretion, noting that increased surveillance and documentation limit the latitude officers once had. The potential consequences for the woman, including placement on the sex offender registry, are highlighted, emphasizing the significance of her actions in a legal context. The podcast hosts express concerns about the long-term implications for the woman and explore the challenges of obtaining information about the case’s current status. The discussion underscores the complexities and potential legal ramifications of the situation.

[53:40] Democratic US Representative Ayanna Pressley and US Senator Peter Welch introduced a bill proposing nationwide voting rights for individuals with past or current prison terms; however, the likelihood of its passage remains uncertain.
