1/ For a professional, collateral consequences can include being tossed out of networking groups which contributes to making it impossible to get a job in your field. I was kicked out of a group called The Financial Executives Networking Group.
2/ Before my arrest, I had helped a number of members. But, a few years after, my membership was revoked. I took it as another loss and never tried to reach back out. I wasn’t ready to advocate for anyone, let alone myself. But,
3/ a number of years have passed and I sent an email to the president of the organization today. I explained that I wasn’t writing for me, but for others. I explained recidivism rates and I talked about all of the good things I had done.

1/ .@abfrankel and .@JoshuaBHoe's conversation on probation gave me some flashbacks. Here's one I never shared. There would random drug checks at probation check-in. Keep in mind that substance abuse was never part of my history and there was no reason to think I would
2/ all of a sudden start using. But, I was still required to pee in a cup. If I showed up for my visit and I couldn't urinate on demand, I would be told to drink water and wait in the waiting room -- not just until I could go, sometimes for hours. That was a huge price to pay
3/ for the crime of coming to a visit with an empty bladder. But, here's the thing. Sometimes, you'd have to wait for an hour or two to be seen in the first place AND there was no guarantee of a urine test. So, many times, I'd sit with in the waiting room with the discomfort of

1of16/ As .@G_Padraic noted, #RBG wrote dissent to the judgment that declared that registries aren't punitive. Below, I captured her dissent without all of the citations and extra legalese. I also took out the specific case referenced. What's left is a beautiful, stunning read.
2/ It is unclear whether the Alaska Legislature conceived of the State’s Sex Offender Registration Act as a regulatory measure or as dissenting penal law. Accordingly, in resolving whether the Act ranks as penal for ex post facto purposes, I would not demand “the clearest proof”
3/ that the statute is in effect criminal rather than civil. Instead, I would neutrally evaluate the Act’s purpose and effects. I would hold Alaska’s Act punitive in effect. Beyond doubt, the Act involves an “affirmative disability or restraint.”

Thread 1/I’ve been on my state's Sex Offense Registry for 9 ½ years. I was placed on it for ten years, so I am scheduled to be removed later this year, in July. If we truly believe that the registry alerts people to danger (spoiler alert: it doesn’t), then it’s interesting
2/that at the beginning of the summer, I’m considered a threat to public safety, but by the end of the summer, I’m miraculously transformed.

In reality, the entire time I’ve been on the registry, I haven’t been a threat. It’s true I committed an offense in 2008. I was guilty
3/and I take responsibility for it. The moment I was arrested, I started a journey of self-discovery to determine why I would cross a societal boundary I knew was wrong. I studied, I read, I met with a therapist, I met with more than one rabbi, I meditated, I wrote, and I
