June 2019 FEARLESS Minutes

Guest Speaker

On Thursday, June 20, we were privileged to have Attorney’s Meghan White and Katie Krejci from the Maricopa County Public Defender’s Office return to our Fearless group to wrap up their discussion on the terms of Probation and Parole.  They answered many of our questions and reviewed the conditions in order to be compliant on Probation or Parole.  We appreciate the time they have given our group to help us with the complexities of supervision.

  • We had a great time and learned a lot at the NARSOL Conference. You can watch most of the sessions on the NARSOL website once they are uploaded. We’ll try to let you know but would like to encourage everyone to become a member and check the website frequently for a lot of great information. Thanks to everyone who participated in the Silent Auction and Quilt Raffle, we raised $4,650 for NARSOL’s legal fund.

    • Here is an article Jenny shared regarding the Alaska Supreme Court ruling that making all sex offenders register is unconstitutional by violating their rights of due process.  It allows for people on the registry to prove that they are not a threat to society.
