When a serial sex offender got away with raping a child… a bipartisan constitutional amendment was introduced to bring child sex offenders to justice.
In 2013, Schupp voted against a constitutional amendment (HJR 16) that made it easier to prosecute child sex offenders.
Missouri voters overwhelmingly passed the amendment…
But Jill Schupp turned her back on victims… and voted no.
In 2013, Schupp voted against a constitutional amendment (HJR 16) “allowing relevant evidence of prior criminal acts to be admissible in prosecutions for crimes of a sexual nature” involving minors.
“This proposes a constitutional amendment allowing relevant evidence of prior criminal acts to be admissible in prosecutions for crimes of a sexual nature involving a victim under 18 years of age.”
Jill Schupp Sides With Sex Offenders
Schupp voted to remove the sex offender status of hundreds of convicted sex offenders – many who had been convicted of violent sexual assaults including child molestation.
In 2013, Schupp voted for HB 301 a bill who’s official legislative summary said it: “Changes the laws regarding certain sexual offenses and sexually violent offenders and establishes a prisoner re-entry program for certain offenders”.
The bill would have removed hundreds of sex offenders from the sex offender registration.
Schupp supported legislation that would have given hundreds of sex offenders a clean slate… letting them roam freely… and Schupp voted to allow sex offenders onto children’s playgrounds… and for some of them to coach youth sports.(Missouri House Journal, April 7, 2009; April 8, 2009, Overall vote on HA 1 to HA 2 to HB 62: 36-100, Schupp vote: Yes)
Schupp: Voted Against Deporting Illegal Immigrant Sex Offenders
In 2011, Schupp voted against bipartisan legislation requiring the state to report sex offenders to the federal government. Her vote would have made it more difficult to deport illegal immigrant sex offenders once they were released from prison.
Schupp was 1 of 23 legislators who voted against a bipartisan bill (HB 731) to require the state to report illegal immigrants on the state’s sex offender registry to the federal government.
The bill also included language to add citizenship information to the state’s sex offender registration form.
“Adds citizenship information to the sexual offender registration form and requires the State Highway Patrol to report to the federal government any non-U.S. citizen on the sexual offender registry.”
