Everyone deserves a second chance there are people murdering others out there.. even they deserve second chances. The Romeo & Juliet law should protect those who are young and in love. You can't pick the person another falls in love with.. Love isn't about age. It's about a special feeling about that other person.

I am signing since MANY other states have TRUE "romeo Juliet" laws that mean you CANT EVEN GET ARRESTED TO BEGIN WITH within that age gap. Michigan just allows you to "petition for removal" (not all get approved based largely on the judge and not the law) and of those who do its ONLY registry removal NOT conviction removal. Its messed up. Horribly.

Because, my son plead guilty to a crime he didn't do out of fear of the courts. He did 13 yrs because of it and is still being punished by society, re; jobs, registry, neighbors, benefits and so forth. He was suppose to be done registering but now has to register for life. Gave him his license then took it back?

I agree past shouldn't mean punish, because then we cannot move forward or have chances to better ourselves and be then only one choice to keep repeating history.

Ruining a person's life forever for a youthful indiscretion is wrong and counterproductive.

Not allowing reformed individuals to reintegrate into society causes more crime and poverty.
