Day 217 - Recap, no protest, penal code 3003.5

No protest today, again. We much prefer protesting during daylight hours but it gets dark so early now it makes it difficult.

Did you know there is a penal code in California that is supposed to prevent multiple sex offenders from residing together?

3003.5. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, when a person is released on parole after having served a term of imprisonment in state prison for any offense for which registration is required pursuant to Section 290, that person may not, during the period of parole, reside in any single family dwelling with any other person also required to register pursuant to Section 290, unless those persons are legally related by blood, marriage, or adoption. For purposes of this section, "single family dwelling" shall not include a residential facility which serves six or fewer persons.

Notice the last sentence. I will bet you a shiny new nickel that someone on the 'Public Safety' committee added that.

Regarding the David Allyn Dokich situation, what is the definition of a 'residential facilty'? Surely a 'facility' must have some sort of license but the Last Chance halfway house does not appear to have any such thing.

Since it mentions 'six or fewer persons', how is it the massive clown house with 24 sex offenders we found back in June of this year is still in operation?

There is a bit of good news though. Jessica's Law adds the following to 3003.5:

(b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, it is unlawful for any person for whom registration is required pursuant to Section 290 to reside within 2000 feet of any public or private school, or park where children regularly gather.

(c) Nothing in this section shall prohibit municipal jurisdictions from enacting local ordinances that further restrict the residency of any person for whom registration is required pursuant to Section 290.

When Jessica's Law passes local politicians will no longer be able to claim it's up to the state and that their hands are tied.

The bad news is, that's a year away.

Keep your kids safe from the predators, see you next time.
