HB195 Del. Ramadan 
Requires the Superintendent of State Police to establish and maintain a supplement to the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry that would include the names of persons who have committed offenses that would require registration if the offense occurred today, but who are not otherwise required to register.  

·       It adds 19+ year old convictions onto the posting of people who are already listed on the Virginia Sex Offender Registry
·       It forces Virginians who have not re-offended in the last 19+ years (including adjudicated juveniles) that have all successfully re-entered society to become Public Sex Offenders. Denying them due process and violating ex post facto
·       Such mandates have been attempted before and failed many Circuit Courts and State Supreme Courts have already dealt with retroactive mandates of registration for a decades old convictions prior to the creation of their States Sex Offender Registry, they’ve been ruled unconstitutional
