Contra Costa Times gets it

Bad sex-offender laws

CALIFORNIA REALLY NEEDS TO examine and modify its sex offender laws. The California Supreme Court recently overturned a law requiring people 21 or older who are convicted of having oral sex with a 16 or 17 year old to register as sex offenders for life.

Shocking and disgusting though it may be, it is the correct decision in this case because it keeps punishment equal for similar crimes.

That is to say, that it is the law that is fouled up here and not the courts.

There are parts of the state's sex offender laws that are inane and need to be revised.

Other cases of adults 21 or older convicted of having sex with 16 and 17 year olds do not necessarily require the convict to register. It is unjust to treat one sexual offense differently from the other.

However, the law needs desperately and immediately to be revisited. Sex is sex.

Those 21 years or older should be having neither oral sex (which is sex, people) nor intercourse in any manner or position with minors.

If they do so, they should be convicted and treated as sex offenders. Period.
