February 10, 2015 Full Vote on the Virginia House Floor:
Some good news!
I haven't given up ........but I can see the writing on the wall. I just hope those who are posted on-line take a legal court challenge against Robby's Rule AND those who are incorrectly presumed to be a Sex Offender because they share a name and yet the online VSP post isn't able to rule them out as the Sex Offender also take a legal challenge against Robby's Rule. For their reputations being smeared by a State run website with out-dated and vague information especially if they lose jobs, rental properties, friends and family because of the confusion, I hope they have grounds for a civil suit. Because the Virginia Legislators, the VSP and all the patrons won't be able to claim ignorance, I've raised the alarm and they willfully ignored the collateral consequences that will occur because of Robby's Rule.
The Delegates won't be wrongly presumed of being a "Sex Offender", but what about the other 203 Virginians with the same name?
I just read the recent Virginian Pilot article
reminded them that the Virginia Sex Offender Registry already lists
approximately 83% of the Offenders as Violent leaving just 17% as Non-Violent
and with SB1138 we would move Virginia closer to a single-tiered classification
system where everyone listed is considered the same and no ever has the ability
to petition for removal. Making it worthless for the public who are attempting
to decipher who poses a true threat and who has just been swept up in such mass
legislative mandates like this one.
