This Bill is long overdue.
Thank you Delegate Pogge!
The myriad of restrictions and regulations that all RSO's must abide by are not available with the VSP, Probation and Parole doesn’t know what they are and even if you pay a lawyer they can't find them all. Then those rules change EVERY year because of the General Assembly. An action or location that was completely legal last year could now be a Class 6 Felony for an RSO this year.
Probation rules are given to those on probation so why doesn’t the Commonwealth disclose the restrictions and regulations that Registered Sex Offenders must obey?
No other group of citizens are banned and restricted like RSO's and because of that they must know what those restrictions are to avoid inadvertently breaking them.
A Great Bill!!!!
