Sex offender registries endanger lives they’re meant to protect

Miriam Aukerman is a senior attorney for the ACLU of Michigan, involved in litigating the Does v. Snyder case. She writes an op-ed for The Hill, explaining why sex offender registries should be not just reformed, but done away with. She says Michigan will have a chance to do that after a federal court ruled against its registry law.

Michigan will have now have to rewrite its unconstitutional registration law. The only moral and logical thing for Michigan – and other states – to do is to abolish the sex offender registry.
