Defense Attorney welcomes some return to normalcy for those convicted of sex crimes
Last March 2015, Graham County Sheriff Danny Millsaps announced that he was banning sex offenders from church. More recently in November 2015, The N.C. Supreme Court upheld a state law that prohibits registered sex offenders from using Facebook or other social networking sites where minors can have an account. These are just the latest developments in a long list of North Carolina events related to sex offenses that border on the absurd and possibly unconstitutional. North Carolina’s list of sex offenders include people who were minors when they committed their offenses, and even people who are still minors. It also includes people who have committed crimes decades ago and have never repeated their crime since. It even includes people convicted of misdemeanors such as public urination, streaking and sexting.
