This is a horrible, nonsensical bill that will place everyone convicted of a “sex offense” on lifetime GPS after October, 2015.
It makes no distinction between someone that looks at inappropriate images on their computer from the privacy of their own home and someone who abducted and raped a child in a school yard. It makes no distinction between a first time offender and a serial rapist. Everyone gets a life sentence!
Offenders will have to cover the cost of monitoring and if they can’t afford to do so, they will earn a new third degree felony and go back to jail.
It is critical that we reach out to our legislators and express opposition to this horrible bill.
