RM280: Defamation vs. Survivor Protection: The Bill’s Battle

[2:17] Doug in Michigan is questioning the appropriateness of his parole stipulations, specifically the ban on social media usage, which he believes might not be tailored to his case and is considering challenging it.

[6:04] The individual is questioning whether they have the legal standing to challenge the way the sex offender registry has been applied to them, given that their conviction for producing child pornography occurred in 2010, before a change in the law, but they were mistakenly recorded as having committed the offense in 2015, and they are seeking advice on how to rectify this error.

[13:57] In California, the “Right to Speak Your Truth Act” has been signed into law, offering sexual assault survivors protection against weaponized defamation lawsuits. Andy supports the bill, asserting that it safeguards survivors’ voices, as false sexual assault accusations are infrequent, allowing them to speak without fear of legal repercussions. Larry, however, expresses concerns about the bill, fearing it may stifle free speech by making it harder to defend against false allegations. The script delves into a detailed discussion of the bill’s pros and cons, and its potential passage in New Mexico. While Larry doubts its success in 2024, he foresees the bill gaining momentum.

[25:39] The discussion revolves around a case in the New Mexico Supreme Court, State vs. Marquez, focusing on the admissibility of prior bad acts under Rule 404(b) and the prosecutors’ alleged misconduct in introducing evidence without proper notice or authority, potentially violating the defendant’s rights.

[39:02] The discussion revolves around the purpose and process of grand juries, with the article suggesting that grand juries are often a rubber-stamp for prosecutors, and that they may need to be abolished due to their limited oversight and power.

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.
