“This case presents two questions: can a district court impose a sexual deviancy evaluation as a condition of supervised release when deviant sexual conduct was not an element of the underlying crime of conviction? If so, is it essential the Government prove a change in circumstances since the original supervised release conditions were imposed, to justify such an additional condition?” The court's answers were yes and no, which puts people on supervised release under even greater control.

In California the Plata decision (forcing the state to reduce prison overcrowding) took almost 20 years to force an obstructionist, footdragging state to act. The state of Minnesota appears to be following the same playbook in its 'treatment' of sex offenders.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-watch/wp/2014/03/05/the-sex-offender-shuffle/
Not to be outdone by Minnesota, the cops in Chicago. Illinois are doing a bang up job of making it impossible for sex offenders to meet their registration requirements. This doesn't mean these men WILL be arrested for violating SORNA requirements, it means they MAY be whenever the Chicago PD needs to divert attention from something else or needs to show the public they are being tough on crime.

In a rare bit of sanity, perhaps inspired by the Supreme Court's Miller decision, Senior Common pleas Judge John Uhler ruled it was unconstitutional for Pennsylvania to require juvenile sex offenders to comply with lifetime registration on the Megan's Law state registry.

We rarely highlight cases against individuals unless they involve some important legal issue. In this case, however, we couldn't help but chuckle with mirth at the news coming out of England that Patrick Rook, the aide to Prime Minister David Cameron assigned to draw up proposals for the country's Internet porn filters, has been arrested on suspicion of possession of child pornography. Perhaps he had just taken his work how with him?

July, 2013

For those of you who have come to depend upon Zeitgeist for important news, I apologize for not updating this blog since June. I have been overwhelmed by other responsibilities. I am now publishing all of those carefully gathered news links provided by my colleague in one go and without the usual commentary or headlines which usually accompany them. Better we should provide these news links without commentary than not at all!

I will resume the usual, commented-upon, link reporting in August's Zeitgeists. For now, all of these uncommented news links appear in July Zeitgeist although it was actually posted August 4. My apologies!

This points, again, to a shortage of volunteers in our community willing to contribute to NAMBLA and to the defense of our freedom and our shared future. We ask you to please consider how you may be of help to this underserved cause.
