[6:00] A listener comment from Louisiana:
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).
