RM246: Interstate Compact Transfers

We take a deep dive into how to get an interstate compact transfer in this episode of Registry Matters. The rules for interstate transfers are confusing and unclear. We give advice on how to start the process, which is through your probation officer, what to expect, and the hurdles and hoops a PFR has to jump over. It’s important that you know why states are reluctant to approve interstate transfers, and which state’s restrictions a PFR under supervision will need to follow.

To ensure we devote enough time to interstate compact transfers, we started with several news stories. The U.S. Department of Justice has awarded states 20 million dollars to help register and track individuals with a sexual offense, which we find ironic as that is already done on the national and state level. But as Larry is fond of saying, “it’s all about the money.”

Another story that caught our attention came out of Mississippi. There a state auditor demanded a private prison operator refund the state for thousands of prison guard shifts that were never worked.

The story of the changes in New York’s care packages process caught our attention because women in prison already receive less support than men, and this change will result in additional burdens for women inmates.

Highlights

[10:25] Press Release from the US Department of Justice awarding 20 million dollars to help states track PFRs.

[16:19] Mississippi Auditor find major fraud in a privately run prison.

[21:27] Changes in New York state’s prison care packages rules.

[33:18] Discussion on how do I get an interstate compact transfer.

The Registry Matters Podcast’s mission is to cover issues surrounding the Registry. We cover cases that will peel back the veneer of what we need to do to change our lives for the better. We cover news articles that spark conversations about the total insanity of this modern day witch hunt. This podcast will call out bad policy and call out those that are making bad policy.

To change things for the positive, we need to act. We are 6-7-8-900k strong. With that many people, plus their friends and family, over a million people are affected by the registry. We should be able to secure donations to hire lawyers and lobbyists to move the agenda in our favor. We need our people to be represented.


RM245: Idaho Crimes Against Nature Causes the State to Settle Doe v. Wasden

Our big case this week is a victory in Idaho for PFRs who were put on the registry because of Idaho’s crimes against nature laws. Men caught having sex would be placed on Idaho’s registry even though the Supreme Court had ruled that anti-sodomy laws were unconstitutional. On behalf of three men, the ACLU took the state to court and won. The courts ruled the state of Idaho had to remove the three men off the registry, as well as any individuals with similar claims. The state was also ordered to pay substantial attorney fees. We feel this is a major win.

More men have died in Alabama prisons, and our hearts go out to their families. We also highlight how Tennessee disenfranchises its citizens who have a felony record, including requiring only those with a record to be current on child support payments before they are eligible to vote.

Kentucky has created a prison to work program, and we discuss the possibility that PFRs will be excluded from the process.

RM244: Doe vs. Swearingen: A Victory in Florida?

Our main case is out of Florida, John Doe vs. Swearingen. It’s an ex post facto challenge. The plaintiffs, whose offenses predate the 1997 Florida registry, currently must follow registration rules from the 2018 amendments to Florida’s registry laws. The court ruled against the plaintiffs, who appealed the ruling. The appeals court ruled in their favor, which means they will have another opportunity to present their case.

However, their victory might be short-lived because Florida is in the 11th District. Recent rulings in the 11st District have not been favorable to PFRs, and the 11th district is bound by precedent.

We also discuss a Halloween Law Enforcement Sweep in Florida and what law enforcement agencies need to do to justify the sweeps. Mississippi Public Defenders are underfunded, and we discuss how the disparity in public defender pay affects those they have to defend. A case in Texas about why an individual who does not commit a sexual offense can still land on the registry. We close out the podcast talking about the challenges incarcerated military vets face when they leave the prison system.

RM243: Military Sexual Assault Statistics–Myths and Facts

We focus on the truth behind military sexual assault statistics and how the system creates incentivizes that some use to exact revenge. Ashley, whose husband is in Joint Regional Correctional Facility in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, joins us for a deep dive into sexual assaults in the military.

Among other things, Ashley describes how the military justice system is different from a civilian justice system. Military justice and due process as well as the standard of proof required for conviction are much lower in military courts.

Other topics include how probation violations can affect early termination, more on the Darrell Brooks case, and what the guilty and innocent findings in two recent high-profile cases say about our society and it’s reaction to accusations of sexual misconduct.

Highlights

[03:29] Interview with Ashley, who discusses her husband’s situation and how military sexual assault statistics create “Dark Figures.”

[22:14] Discussion with Larry about possible steps to raise public awareness.

[36:58] Probation violations and early termination from probation.

RM242: Felons and PFRs and Social Security

Felons and PFRs and Social Security

We focus on felons, PFRs, and Social Security and how a felony conviction and time spent incarcerated can affect their future benefits. We explore how the Social Security administration calculates earnings, COLAs and AIME (average indexed monthly earnings).

First, we address several questions from listeners and supporters. These include how free speech concerns could be related to PFR concerns about the registry.

We discuss a question about total internet bans on individuals who are on supervision, what steps to take before thinking about a lawsuit. We also discuss why it is difficult to find attorneys who will take on these kinds of challenges.

The podcast also covers whether probation violations count as recidivism and what effect a violation could have on release from the registry.

And after our segment on felons and PFRs and social security, we discuss the situation in Fulton County, Georgia, of people sitting in prison without having been charged with a crime.

Highlights

[09:34] Internet access while on supervision

[15:36] Being held past a release date and how to respond

[18:18] Library access in Lee County, Florida

[20:34] Technical violations and recidivism

[26:53] Felons and PFRs and Social Security

[57:29] Fulton County jail overcrowding

RM241: Alabama Rules PFR Restrictions Just a Civil Regulatory Scheme

We begin with a listener question regarding Computer Voice Analysis tests and whether a sex offender on parole can refuse the test.

We follow that with a long discussion about a recent ruling in Alabama–McGuire v. Cunningham, Marshall, and Richardson. The court found that Alabama’s restrictions for PFRs amount to a civil regulatory scheme. Those restrictions include:

in-person quarterly registration;

direct notification to the public when a registrant lives nearby;

prohibits registrants from living, working, or volunteering within 2,000 feet of schools or childcare centers;

requires homeless registrants to report to law enforcement once a week;

and mandates that registrants notify law enforcement before traveling.

This segment also highlights the tragic story of Michael McGuire.

Our next segment focuses on a case in New Mexico, State of New Mexico v. Ryan Thompson. Mr. Thompson sued because the parole board did not offer him a probationary review even though a PFR who has been on supervision for five years is entitled to have one.

Our podcast ends with a short discussion about another part of the civil regulatory scheme–electronic monitoring.

RM240: Preliminary Injunction Denied in AWA Challenge

Tonight we talk about a long-time listener’s question about Wisconsin and Iowa registry laws. He is no longer on supervision but is required to wear a GPS monitor. The listener wants to move to Iowa to free himself from a GPS monitor, but because of Iowa’s registry laws, he might rid himself of the monitoring but have his time on the registry extended.

Then we discuss a recent ruling in a case out of California. ACSOL, or the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws, sought an injunction challenging SORNA regulations. Laws that seek a preliminary injunction need to show a high likelihood of success on the merits and that there would be irreparable harm. The court also considers who has standing in a court case, and the Department of Justice argued that the plaintiff, John Doe, does not have standing.

Our show ends with a discussion about natural disasters and how PFRs are affected by limitations to evacuation shelters. Although a PFR might have standing if they filed a challenge, because of the number of agencies involved, the case might become a game of agencies pointing fingers at each other.
