RM71: Illinois Rules On Sex Offenders Unconstitutional

In this first episode of April, we received a large amount of questions and voicemail; we cover a news item that shows strong support for people using or purchasing products that hire formerly incarcerated people; A man in Missouri soon to be executed requested a different method of execution, and SCOTUS denied it – the 8th Amendment doesn’t guarantee a painless death, but does prevent there from being a more painful death; And how inconsistent we are with providing a religious advisor at an execution based on different religions; Instead of revealing the software tools being used, prosecutors drop charges after being questioned; College student sentenced to 12 years in prison and he says he didn’t do it; Another shocker, Alabama prison has “Horrendously inadequate” medical treatment; Decision from Illinois where individuals are held past their release date, thus violating their constitutional rights.

  1. Have you ever heard of a situation where a registrant (NOT ON ANY OTHER SUPERVISION OF ANY KIND) has wanted to move to another state and was told by the destination state that if they didn’t have a job or family already in that state that they won’t allow you to move there?

    It seems I read somewhere years ago that states are reluctant to let registered citizens to just move in unless they are moving to come to a job or if they have family in the state. If they’re just wanting to move for the sake of moving, I’ve heard they have been turned down.

    • I don’t think that can be a thing. Off of supervision, you can go where you want – right?
      Then depending on the state, you have to follow their rules.

  2. Once off supervision, interstate travel is deemed a very strong right. At least that’s what I have read in times past.

    • I had heard of this conundrum while doing time, I think. That is where I heard that now that I think of it…in prison and you know how a rumor mill churns in prison.

  3. “I don’t know that he didn’t have sex.” That’s true in every sex offense case that didn’t happen in public with witnesses.
