Removal From Megan’s Law
Back in 1996 the so-called Megan’s Law was passed in response to the rape and murder of Megan Kanka, who was only 7 years old. A man who moved in a house across the street from the Kanka’s home committed that horrible crime. The local authorities knew that the man was actually a convicted sex offender, a child molester, but this information was unavailable to the public and to the parents of Megan Kanka. Consequently, Megan’s Law was initiated in response to that crime and was designed to provide all the information regarding registered sex offenders to the public and through the World Wide Web.
Needless to say, most people are not very happy when they find out that their private info is put on public display. Sure enough, sex offenders are all the more passionate about that matter. A number of sex offenders could be placed under the category of “undisclosed” cases, when the registered offenders that are largely known to the authorities do not have any info about them on the web. Not all the offenders fall under this category. In case that you do not, perhaps you may apply for removal.
There is a special Megan’s Law exclusion form that will need to be filled in and returned to the Department of Justice in California. In order for a person to be eligible for removal, he or she must correspond with certain requirements and criteria. For instance, in case that you are deemed as a sexually violent predator, it will automatically make you ineligible to applying for removal. However, if you will meet all the requirements, you are going to be removed from Megan’s Law and your info will therefore be removed from the World Wide Web. Of course, if you are going to commit yet another sex offense, you are going to be placed back under Megan’s Law and their website, but if you meet the criteria for removal, you will also be able to reapply.
