[Vision2020] Quick Question

Tom et al.
I wasn't offering any excuses - I intended to state only what I did or did
not know. Here is the information I have from Idaho code Title 18-8307
The written notification shall be a form provided by the department
and approved by the attorney general and shall be signed by the defendant.
court shall retain one (1) copy, provide one (1) copy to the offender, and
submit one (1) copy to the central registry within three (3) working days of
(c) Within five (5) days of the mailing date of the notice, the offender
shall appear in person at the office of the sheriff with jurisdiction
the purpose of completing the registration process;
So I guess Mr Sitler has 8 days to comply - don't know how weekends fit into
As far as other concerns:
"1) Does Sitler's employment entail customer service/interaction?"
I don't know. P&P would.
"2) Does Sitler's employment place him within proximity of children?"
I don't know. Since his employer knows of his offense and has been
contacted by P&P, one would hope this would be monitored. There may be
strict limits on what distance "proximity" is, and any violation of this
would be a violation of his probation. This could result in the judge
imposing the original sentence (life in prison).
"3) Is Sitler's employment (in any way, shape, form, or fashion) affiliated
with child day care?"
Highly unlikely: it is a felony as provided in section 18-8327, Idaho Code,
for an offender to accept employment in any day care center, group day care
facility or family day care home, as those terms are defined in chapter 11,
title 39, Idaho Code, or to be upon or to remain on the premises
of a day care center, group day care facility or family day care home while
children are present, other than to drop off or pick up the offender's
child or children.
"Is this supervision being maintained 24/7 or only until the bars close?"
I'm not sure what the "until the bars close" comment is meant to convey.
Are you asking if P&P officers are on the clock until the bars close? Are
you asking if it is "safe" outside until the bars close and Mr Sitler leaves
one? I don't know all the details of Mr Sitler's probation, but going to a
bar is most assuredly NOT an option for him. If the tomandrodna site is
yours, you might check your own posting on Mr Sitler's crime and read the
As part of his probation, Mr Sitler will be required to take polygraph tests
as part of his treatment program, and quite possible for the duration of his
probation. A "distressed" polygraph will result in an investigation by P&P
which could lead to a probation violation and and imposing of the original
I think we are all concerned. I think we all need to ask questions, and get
as many answers as possible. I think we need to be concerned about 1) ALL
the predatory sex offenders in our community and not 2) only those
affiliated with Christ Church. One strikes of caution and concern; the
other of persecution.
"Be concerned. Be very concerned"
(with more apologies to Veronica Quaife)
