Sunshine In Georgia


The one-size-fits-all approach to the law-enforcement treatment and classification of sex offenders is on the chopping block. Both the George House and Senate have approved legislation that would give folks required to register on the state's sex offender registry to the right to petition the courts for removal from the list.

Of course, no all offenders will be eligible for removal. Only those folks convicted of less serious offenses are eligible to petition for removal.

The bill was passed by the George House of Representatives in March; it cleared the Georgia Senate by a vote of 45-0 yesterday.

Stay tuned. It may soon by champagne-cork poppin' time.

    This is good to see happening. There must be some clear thinking people in Georgia. I just hope though that all the people who committed offenses that prior to the Adam Walsh type laws were misdemeanors and "became" felonies will have a change to get their crimes looked at again. These are for non violent crimes, yet it's ruining their lives. (losing jobs, family, having to move, fear from vigilantes).
