Michigan Laws to Change?

It's at least a start:

A House Republican proposal would make the registry retroactive to include some offenders who were convicted of crimes before 1995. That’s when the law creating a registry took effect.

Republican lawmaker David Law of Oakland County’s Commerce Township is behind the plan. He says people convicted of first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim under 13 should be on the registry no matter when the offense happened.

I couldn't agree more. And, personally-- I don't think that WHERE the offense took place should matter either.

Now, if only the rest of the states would start making these changes.
