RM288: Textual Tightrope: Analyzing State Boundaries in Registry Cases

In this episode of Registry Matters, we feature The State of North Carolina v. Larry Fritsche, where the court considered whether time spent on another state’s sex offender registry counted toward the 10-year requirement for early removal from North Carolina’s registry. Despite Fritsche’s 13 years on Colorado’s registry, the court ruled that only time registered in North Carolina applies. The decision, in line with a previous case, is defended as a reasonable textual interpretation, emphasizing legislative intent to protect the public. The script notes Fritsche’s strategic moves and highlights the court’s reliance on legislative silence over 12 years as a significant factor in its decision.

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.
