Hello at least that’s my opinion. You should get to know your lawmakers. Probably called senator and delegate. They are the ones who can change the law. SOR and the courts don’t mesh. The courts just blame things on the lawmakers and don’t help. That’s my experience as I continue 4 years worth of trying to change issues with this sex registry in Virginia.
My case. I am a tier one which can petition after 15 years. Code 9.1-908 states tier 3 cannot petition! BUT ambiguity becomes a tool for the prosecutor that prevents the judge from considering statute 9.1-908.
My senator almost fixed this issue and 2020. But I am now preparing for 2023. This affects 5,000 tier 1 and tier 2 offenders in Virginia.
Wish me luck and the same to you.
