In this episode, we discuss the Clements v. State of Florida case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. Andy is intrigued by the case and wonders why Larry waited until the last minute to discuss it. Larry explains that he only learned about it recently. They delve into the details of the case, where Clements filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, claiming that sex offender registration and restrictions should qualify as being “in custody.”
Larry is skeptical of this argument, stating that Clements is not technically in custody as defined by the law. Andy argues that the registration requirements are similar to probation, but Larry disagrees, emphasizing the differences. They also debate whether the case has practical consequences for individuals facing restrictions on their liberty due to sex offender registration.

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.
