Jessica's Law and the Civil Rights of Sex Offenders

Hosted by

Jessica's Law passed nine years ago with 70% of the vote. The goal was to protect future victims from repeat sex offenders. But the State Supreme Court and Attorney General Kamala Harris have ruled that applying it to all convicts across the board is unconstitutional.  The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says that a case-by-case approach is not only more humane — it's a better way to accomplish the goal of Jessica's Law.
