Prosecutor’s silence made the difference (access required)

DA’s decision to keep quiet allowed for sex offender’s removal from registry

Cleveland County District Attorney Richard L. Shaffer Jr. spoke only twice during a hearing for a convicted sex offender who was arguing that he should not be required to register as a sex offender. Shaffer introduced the case to the court and later, when Superior Court Judge Forrest D. Bridges asked if he wanted to object to the offender’s request, he said, “No sir.” Then it was over. Bridges granted the offender’s petition and terminated his registration requirement.
