Airheaded mASSachusetts State Rep. Shaunna O'Connell gets the first nomination for Dumbest quote of 2016
Here is Massachusetts Rep. Shaunna O'Connell showing off her reading level. It must be the case, since it is obvious that she is your stereotypical airheaded blonde. O'Dumbell must be trying to be the Lauren "The Bimbo" Book of the north, since she is also willing to lie about the sex offender legal issue. The article was in response to a recent ruling allowing registered citizens a chance to appeal their wrongful designation on the state's registry scheme.
A decision made in the state's highest court is causing information of hundreds of sex offenders to no longer be available to the public.
"I'm not going to say that there's no public safety concern whatsoever, but we're going to do the best we can to honor the courts' decision," said Kevin Hayden, chairman of the Sex Offender Registry Board.
The ruling will allow for some sex offenders to challenge their classification as either level two or level three sex offenders. During the challenge, information about where they work and live will no longer be made public.
"The reason we have a sex offender registry is so that victims and parents can find out where sex offenders live and where they work, where they go to school...so that they can keep themselves safe," said State Rep. Shaunna O'Connell.
O'Connell said reducing access to that information on the state's sex offender registers puts victims and families at risk.
In December, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decided sex offender classification needed to be proven to a “high degree of probability.”
So all pending sex offender cases and cases under the appeals process will get the benefit of that higher burden of proof. Information about level two and level three sex offenders, or high risk offenders, is currently available online.
"The sex offender registry is constantly attacked so that sex offenders can hide," said O'Connell.
"We're talking about 500 cases possibly more that have to be given new hearings," said Hayden.
Sex Offender Registry Board will conduct all the new hearings and Harden explained that once they're given new hearings, those offenses will enter into an unclassified status. At that point, the individual is taken offline.
"What we actually have today is not a fair and accurate representation of who actually a high risk, moderate risk or a low risk," said Eric Tennen, a criminal defense attorney.
It isn't enough this braindead idiot was interviewed, she took her stupidity to social media:
