Action Required to Pass Tiered Registry Bill, AB702

Posted by Seth Chazin | May 30, 2013 | 1 Comment


Bill AB 702 hasn't passed yet!

The tiered registry bill, AB 702, is currently being held up in the Appropriations Committee of the California Assembly.

This bill will delineate between various levels of dangerousness for those required to register pursuant to Penal Code Section 290.

Please call the office of committee chairman, Mike Gatto, to request that he release the bill this week so that it can be considered on the floor of the Assembly.  Gatto's phone number is 916-319-2043.

Reasons for passage of the tiered registry bill include:

  • A tiered registry will save $115 million a year for state and local governments
  • California is 1 of only 4 states in the nation WITHOUT a tiered registry bill
  • A tiered registry will increase public safety because limited law enforcement services will be focused upon those who pose a REAL current risk to society and not on those who have committed a non-contact, non-violent offense.

I am really sorry to hear about the impact that your prior conviction has had on your life. You are not alone. This has been the case for thousands of others who have been treated unfairly. You actually may be eligible for a certificate of rehabilitation. You should call me to discuss this matter further.
