Judge: NC sex offenders don't need lifetime monitoring

READ MORE:
RALEIGH (AP) -- A Wake Superior Court judge has ruled that four North Carolina sex offenders shouldn't be subject to lifetime monitoring. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that the monitoring devices were removed after Judge Ripley Rand's ruling Thursday. The decision was the latest rejection of the state's attempts to track sex offenders who have finished their sentences. Many are contesting the tracking, under which more than 100 people are monitored statewide. Attorneys opposing the monitoring have argued that the system violated constitutional rights and was beset by technical problems. Corrections officials say the department spends almost $3,000 a year to track one offender. --- Information from: The News & Observer, http://www.newsobserver.com (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press.

sex offenders beening done wrong

i think nc is doing sex offenders wrong

registration

I think its unfair to triple the registration time because of someone killing someone, I simpathize but I also haven't ever killed any body.

release

I bet if it was the Judge or one of his family members. The person would never be released.

Sex Offenders

I feel that we should consider each case by its merits. I also feel that there are two separate offences to be considered. Molestation is preformed by is a parent, teacher, or acquaintance when a child under 18 years of age is molested. If it is a parent, teacher, or acquaintance that is the molester, place them in jail for no less than ten years for each occurrence, and they should be permanently marked in a place of full sight at all times (the back of both hands). The reason for the marking is, if they would do this to a person they know and that trusted them, how can we society ever trust them again. Rape must and can only be rape if there is no consent given by the person being raped. If it is a brutal, aggravated, or grievous rape the rapist should be placed in jail in general population for no less than twenty years for each rape. If the rape victim is murdered the punishment should be death by public hanging in the County of the person that was raped and murdered. All cases where the offender is under the age of 16 years of age should be handled as presently, under the juvenile laws.

NC Sex Offenders

Too bad we cannot apply the death sentence to every last one. That has to be cheaper :)

I must disagree with what

I must disagree with what you said. My fiance recently was put in jail for molesting his niece. Which i dont condone for a minute. Although i dont feel he needs to be throw away to the side or put to death. I know he is a good person and would do anything for anyone. He is a good father and a wonderful fiance who would do anything for his family. He made a mistake and i believe with some help could overcome his wrong. I dont think it is fair that his children should suffer going a lifetime without their father. Myself and his two children have now lost our home due to the fact he is sitting in jail and not being able to provide for his family. I have now had to ask for help from the state which in return now you as a taxpayer are having to pay for. When he is very capable of working and providing for his family. I believe everyone in life deserves a second chance especially when they are not a threat. I will say it again just putting him in jail will do nothing i believe the money spent on feeding and sheltering a person convited of molesting someone would be better spent for counseling and probation. Of course if someone was to brutually attack another then of course you have a different set of standards.

They shouldn't be tracked

They should be in prison for a lonnnnng time. Second offense after release? Execution. Plain and very simple. If they pose a danger to society, they need to be PERMANENTLY removed from society. (Note 1) Note 1: Applies to repeat offenders for any violent felony or felony with the potential for violence. Armed robbers, burglars, rapists.....we should have long lines leading up to the Guillotine. We'd all be safer and the state would save billions of dollars.

Punishment for people who Molest or Rape
