New Jersey Sex Offender Reform was formed in 2013 on behalf of New Jerseys registered sex offender population in direct response to the restrictions imposed upon sex offenders in New Jersey. We believe the current laws while good intentioned as they may be, are unconstitutional, ineffective and ultimately in need of change.

New Jersey citizens are just beginning to learn about a massive and unjust assault taking place today on a whole class of people - a couple of million at least. These are those called "sex offenders," and their families. Together, they share public humiliation akin to the Salem pillory of centuries ago, as well as severe restrictions on movement, residence and everyday life. Virtually unnoticed, an additional group of people - numbering also in hundreds, more likely in the thousands - are those who found the repression too great, contemplated suicide, and chose instead, exile.

People who are merely accused of sex offenses in the United States today, however fairly or unfairly grounded, and however great or small the alleged offense, are at once part of a new outcast group. Once convicted, they are treated far worse than murderers and other violent criminals in more humane societies like Canada. And once they serve draconian sentences, the persecution goes on - in some states and for many offenders, for the rest of their lives.

Not welcome in parks or campsites, or in libraries or swimming pools, they must stay away from schools and scouting and other youth events, even when their own children are involved. In some states, they may not use computers, nor can their family members. In some states, they may not attend church events where youth are present. They must live within narrowly defined enclaves, sometimes only in motels on the outskirts of towns, or under bridges and underpasses, as in the infamous Miami case.

No longer sit in silence and suffer, now is the time for action - join the New Jersey Sex Offender Reform project!

The Walsh Act organizes sex offenders into three tiers and mandates Tier 3 offenders (the most serious tier) update their whereabouts every three months with lifetime registration requirements. Tier 2 offenders must update whereabouts every six months.

UTICA - In recent years, residents of Oneida County sometimes have only learned that a sex offender was living in their neighborhood after it was too late – when the offender committed another sex offense or an act of violence, officials said.
