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.
