Federal Suit Challenges Sex Offender Registry
Twenty-five people listed on the state’s lifelong sex offender registry are suing to have their names removed, arguing that it is unconstitutionally cruel.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that the plaintiffs include a woman barred by her church from a marathon to fight hunger and a man who saw hatred spewed so often his daughter was forced to move and his wife took her own life. Some of their children joined the federal suit as plaintiffs, claiming the lifetime requirement of their parents has deprived them of their constitutional rights as well.

In this trying time we want to reiterate a few things for our registrants and families. We don't want there to be any confusion or penalties concerning registry requirements during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Make sure you know current requirements. You can go to your Sheriff's Office website to see if there is new information there. If so, we suggest you do a screen print and save it. Call your registry office to get clarification on any questions you might have. Document the date, time, who you spoke with and their instructions regarding any address change, vehicle, employment, travel dates if required, etc.
Keep in mind if you are required to update your drivers license annually through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) you should contact them for their status. Some are limiting the number of people allowed inside and you have to wait to receive a call from them and then come back inside. Document any instructions.Be safe, be smart, stay healthy and know we will get through this.
