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.
