Former Corrections Worker Appeals Sex Offender Registry Requirement

Anastacio Gallardo is serving a three-and-a-half year prison term for having sex with an inmate, but is appealing part of his sentence that requires he be put on the sex offender registry.

Topeka (WIBW) – It will likely be several weeks before the Kansas Appeals Court rules whether a former corrections worker must register as a sex offender.

Anastacio Gallardo pleaded guilty in June 2008 to having sex with an inmate at Topeka Correctional, where he was a maintenance supervisor. The woman became pregnant as a result.Gallardo was given a suspended sentence of three and a half years in prison and placed on probation, but is appealing another part of his sentence that requires he be put on the sex offender registry.

Gallardo argued before the Kansas Court of Appeals this week that it’s not required because there’s no proof the actions were sexually motivated. The state, however, argues there is no apparant reason to engage in the acts other than for “sexual gratification.”

No firm decision is set for the Court to issue its decision, but a court spokesperson says rulings typically take four to six weeks.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
