[6:00] A listener comment from Louisiana:
https://lawreview.law.lsu.edu/2016/10/11/too-poor-for-freedom-sex-offender-registry-and-the-fourteenth-amendment/
Just a reminder that in Louisiana it’s practically a crime to be registered and poor.  Community notification is paid for by the registrant. Mine just cost me $193.50 for a newspaper ad and $500.60 for postcards. Plus $82 for an ID card AND driver’s license good for just one year. Can’t pay? That’s a felony failure to notify, minimum 2 years (up to 10).
