01) The MI SOR: From non-public tool for LE to public, punitive, ineffective monstrosity in 20 years

“The ACLU and activists seeking changes to Michigan’s 40,000-person sex offender registry may have a new ally: new state Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel. Earlier this month, Nessel’s office filed briefs in two cases before the state’s Supreme Court, arguing that “the state Sex Offender Registration Act has gone far beyond its purpose and now imposes burdens that are so punitive in their effect that they negate the State’s public safety justification,” according to a press release announcing the action.

Additional amendments to the sex offender registration law were passed in 2006 and 2011, and pulled the reins tighter in ways that have been found unconstitutional in federal court.”

Possible good news?
