The radical California Governor Gavin Newsom has done it again. He’s now signed a controversial bill into law Friday that will give judges greater discretion to decide whether adults who commit sodomy with minors should be placed on California’s sex offender registry.
The bill, which passed the Democrat-led legislature last week, created a firestorm as proponents said its main purpose was to end discrimination against LGBT adults who have oral and anal sex with minors who claim to be consenting to the sexual activity.
This my friends is absolutely sickening and a disgrace to everyone that has any type of moral compass what so ever.
The following is from Breitbart:
State Sen. Scott Wiener (D), who introduced the legislation, said in a statement on social media the new law would put an end to “blatant discrimination against young LGBT people engaged in consensual activity.”
“It’s appalling that in 2020, California continues to discriminate against LGBTQ people, by mandating that LGBTQ young people be placed on the sex offender registry in situations where straight people aren’t required to be placed on the registry,” Wiener said.
The primary stated goal of the measure appears to be to end automatic addition to the state’s sex offender registry list for adults who have oral or anal sex with a minor.
The Senate Floor Analysis of SB 145 states the measure:
Exempts a person convicted of non-forcible sodomy with a minor, oral copulation with a minor, or sexual penetration with a minor, as specified, from having to automatically register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Registry Act if the person was not more than 10 years older than the minor at the time of the offense, and the conviction is the only one requiring the person to register.
California fails to mandate registration as a sex offender who commits a violation of sexual intercourse with a minor who is within 10 years of the offender. Sexual penetration is distinguishable from sexual intercourse in that the vaginal penetration is anything other than a penis.
“Additionally, the crimes of sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 14 are punished in a separate code section, as lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under the age of 14,” the analysis also said.
“This bill allows judges and prosecutors to evaluate cases involving consensual sex acts between young people, regardless of their sexual orientation, on an individual basis,” said Jackie Lacey, the Los Angeles County district attorney who wrote and sponsored the bill, reported USA Today. “I drafted this bill because I believe the law must be applied equally to ensure justice for all Californians.”
This is unbelievable folks, imagine if this were your child.. You can read more from our friends over at Breitbart.
