This weeks episode dives into a decision out of Massachusetts that is poised to release a man convicted over 40 years ago, and has since been civilly committed. This is a fascinating legal read and Larry gives us the run down.
We begin however with the important news items related to the registry starting with a listener question regarding registrants using Facebook and other social media; Then an article from The Atlantic which talks about law enforcement not being particularly happy about being profiled by computers, but are happy to use the tool themselves; A registrant in California who did not commit a sexual offense, but is on the registry; A bill in Louisiana could make it a crime for defense attorneys to do their job; Some legal theory behind our two newest SCOTUS justices; More bills are being passed extending statute of limitations; SCOTUS justices are defending the recent inconsistent decisions to stop / allow executions to move forward; Professor that stepped up to help Harvey Weinstein removed from deanship; Oklahoma house passes a pretty large criminal justice reform bill; And finally, Larry goes into detail about the man being released from civil commitment
