Attempt to end lifetime sex-offender registration in California fails
SACRAMENTO âÂÂ California will not end lifetime registration requirements for sex offenders after a bill to overhaul the registry stalled in the Assembly on Friday. SB421 by state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, would have allowed most sex offenders to be removed from the registry 10 to 20 years after they are released from prison, so long as they have not committed another serious or violent felony or sex crime. The bill was sought by law enforcement and scholars who argued CaliforniaâÂÂs registry has become so bloated âÂÂ 100,000 sex offenders and counting âÂÂ that it makes it difficult for officers or the public to determine who is a high-risk for reoffending.
