If you have served your 10 years on the sex offender registery the court ordered and the state police refuse to remove you from the site, who would handle this, where I don't have to shell out thousands of dollars to get this resolved?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Illinois
Nothing, sheriff is telling state police to get their information corrected and state police are telling sheriff to inform me they determined I have to register for life.
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. There might be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I am typing out my answer, or taking a quick break. Please remember that this is general information only, not legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is formed.I am sorry for your situation. If the Court ordered that you should be removed from the site but the authorities have not done so, then ordinarily one would seek redress in Court under post-judgment motions.However, if you wish to save money and try to work this out without going back to Court (keep in mind you may ask for legal fees if the other side is found not obliging the order), then one would normally address this issue to the Attorney General of the State:http://illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/...who is ultimately responsible for maintaining the site.If it is the AG who is refusing to follow the order, then I am afraid going back to Court is your only option, generally speaking.You may also try to get your representatives involved, but it is unlikely that they will do much in such a case:http://www.elections.il.gov/districtlocator/districtofficialsearchbyaddress.aspxI hope this finds you well. Please remember that I do not get credit for my time with you unless the answer is rated/concluded by you (a bonus is not mandatory but is much appreciated); I work very hard to formulate an informative answer for you – please reciprocate my good faith. If you still need information, hit reply so we can chat until you are satisfied. You may always come back to it to ask follow ups on this topic free of charge.
Would this be something the ACLU would take on?
Maybe. See here:http://www.aclu-il.org/Also, I can recommend two more resources. First, here is a list of all pro bono work in the state:http://www.abanet.org/legalservices/probono/directory/illinois.htmlSecond, call your local law school and ask for the family law clinic. The legal clinic is a free service the school(s) provide to the community. While they are often overbooked, they have openings sometimes. Here is the list for them: http://www.hg.org/law-schools-illinois.aspI hope this finds you well. Please remember that I do not get credit for my time with you unless the answer is rated/concluded by you (a bonus is not mandatory but is much appreciated); I work very hard to formulate an informative answer for you – please reciprocate my good faith.
