Dating site for sex offenders
Sex offenders are among the most reviled citizens of our nation.
Subject to registration, residency restrictions, and literally hundreds of other constricting laws, the 800,000 people on America’s sex-offender registries are by far the most policed population in our country.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the plaintiff's attorney has said he will ask a Los Angeles County judge to issue a temporary injunction barring from signing up more members until his client's demands for criminal screening are met.
The announcement came after a Hollywood executive, identified only as Jane Doe, called for the site to change its policies in a lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
In the suit, the woman alleges she was sexually assaulted by another member, Alan Paul Wurtzel, who had been convicted six times for sexual battery, according to a statement issued by her lawyer, Mark Webb.
According to the class action lawsuit, the woman met Wurtzel through in 2010, and the two set up a meeting, after which he raped her.
Related felony charges are pending, according to court documents.
