The California authorities indicators laws permitting GPS monitoring of sure intercourse offenders

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed legislation (AB1641) allowing the state to keep tabs on certain “sexually violent predators” via the Global Positioning System, despite opposition from both the American Civil Liberties Union’s California Action and the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, reports the Los Angeles Times. The bill would require such predators to be monitored during a conditional release program from rehabilitation programs.

Critics have argued that convicted sex offenders who have been granted parole have already served time in prison and are being treated at Coalinga State Hospital. The Peace Officers Research Assn. from California said it would “clarify some ambiguities in the law and keep the public safe.”
