Richard Gladden, the plaintiff's lawyer in this case, is no stranger to representing plaintiffs against unconstitutional actions against alleged sex offenders. He has already won several cases in the Federal Courts in Austin. This current issue is a problem that has already been successfully attacked in other jurisdictions. It is time the local areas stopped trying to "out do" what the legislature has already established as acceptable law in this state.
After 40 years of practicing criminal law it is very clear to me that a majority of sex offenders are mislabeled as dangerious. In fact, in Texas the Parole Board labels as sex offenders many (they testified about 7,000 in federal court in Austin) who do not even have a sex offense conviction. I know because I tried several of those cases with Mr. Gladden, and he knows what he is doing.
