Laws for juvenile or non-violent offenders really do need reform: a horrible case in Texas


Reason Magazine (libertarian oriented) has an article by Lenore Skenazy, arguing for reform of sex offender laws, here.  She cites a case in Texas,  A teenager was put on the registry for touching his sister inappropriately at age 12.  He was in youth detention for four years but permanently on the registry.  He was recently arrested and charged again for a separate sexual offense for not notifying authorities in time that he was going to move (change address).
