The Child Molestation Research & Prevention Institute Opposes California's Prop. 83 - Vote No

October 2006

    The Child Molestation Research & Prevention Institute recommends a "No" vote on California Ballot Proposition 83 -- Jessica's Law. Prop. 83 prohibits registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of any school or park among other measures. Jessica's Law sounds good and is well-intentioned, but it is not supported by research and is severely misguided in its attempt to protect children from sexual abuse. If it passes, Jessica's Law will likely decrease safety for children. Here is why:

• Research has shown that sex offenders in a stable environment (with stable housing, jobs, and social support) are less likely to commit new sex offenses. Residency requirements drastically reduce this stability.

• Under Prop. 83, most convicted sex offenders will be forced to relocate to rural areas where they will be far away from treatment and support services. Access to treatment and support services is critical toward the protection of children.

• Rather than comply with a residency restriction that would require them to leave their present homes and jobs, many offenders will likely stop registering. This has already occurred in Iowa where the number of sex offenders who are unaccounted for has doubled since a similar residency restriction went into effect in June 2005. If sex offenders stop registering, the whole purpose of the Megan's Law database is defeated.

• Public policies geared primarily toward "stranger danger" divert our attention and limited resources away from where we need them the most. 90% of sexually abused children are abused by a family member or someone the family knows well and trusts. The vast majority of these abusers are never reported, let alone tried and convicted. Unfortunately, Prop. 83 is generally designed to address sex offenders who are strangers to their victims and fails to address the enormous numbers of abusers who pose the greatest risk to our children.

• Prop. 83 also requires lifetime GPS monitoring for all felony convicted sexual offenders. While costing $100 million annually in only 10 years, GPS monitoring does nothing to prevent an act of sexual abuse on a child.

Prop. 83 will likely put all children, and especially rural children, at greater risk.

Rather than create policies that make us feel safer, we need to create policies that are evidence-based and actually make our children safer.

A "No" vote on Prop. 83 is also recommended by these organizations:

• California Coalition Against Sexual Assault - www.calcasa.org (a statewide victim advocacy coalition of 84 rape crisis centers and sexual assault prevention programs)

• California Coalition on Sexual Offending - www.ccoso.org

BAY AREA (KRON)-- It's often impossible to see when a child has been sexually molested. There may be no obvious physical signs, but the emotional damage can be enormous.
