TN : Add Juveniles To Sex Offender Registry

December 8, 2009 Comments off Juveniles Should Be On Sex Offender Registry, Too.

State Representative Debra Maggart (R-Hendersonville) and Senator Diane Black (R-Gallatin) will push for passage of legislation in January to place violent juvenile offenders on Tennessee’s Sex Offender Registry as required under the federal Adam Walsh Act. The legislators introduced legislation today to place offenders between the ages of 14 and 18 years of age on the Registry.

Readers in Tennessee should contact these two political puppets and explain to them what is happening in Ohio, where two Supreme Court cases are currently being decided on the constitutional violations of the Adam Walsh Act on juveniles.
