Read the transcript of RM104: I Got My Rights Because I’m A Police Officer

We are happy to bring you this post Thanksgiving episode of Registry Matters. We were thankful to be joined by a bunch of people during the live stream too. I’m thankful for that 🙂 We tried to keep it a bit lighthearted on the heels of the holiday to poke fun at a not so funny situation where an off duty cop “harassed” some shoppers, which is where the title comes from “I Got My Rights Because I’m A Police Officer”

We start with a question about the various cease and desist letters being sent in New Mexico primarily to the sheriffs offices. What is the reasoning behind them being sent.

Another listener question that came from RM103 about “when does the 15 year clock start”? In-the-Matter-Of-Registrant-H.D._New Jersey Superior Court 2018. The listener had challenges finding any consensus with the various attorneys that they questioned.
