Janice Bellucci

California Reform Sex Offender Laws
Attorney and President
Los Angeles, CA, USA


Janice M. Bellucci has been an attorney for more than 30 years.  She founded California Reform Sex Offender Laws, a statewide non-profit dedicated to protecting the Constitution by restoring the civil rights of sex offenders and currently serves as President of that organization.  In that capacity, Janice is challenging residency restrictions adopted by cities and counties which virtually banish sex offenders.  In the recent past, Janice filed a series of 30 lawsuits in federal court that led to the eradication of proximity restrictions for sex offenders.     

Janice also successfully challenged laws passed by the City of Simi Valley, the City of Orange and the CA Department of Corrections that required sex offenders to post a sign on the front door of their home stating they were sex offenders on Halloween.  The judge in the Simi Valley lawsuit granted a temporary restraining order (TRO) which prevented that city from enforcing that requirement.

Janice led the nation’s first sex offender protest in the City of Carson on March 7, 2015, the 50-year anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, to highlight a city law that prohibits sex offenders from visiting both public and private places.  Janice obtained the first stay of enforcement from Jessica’s Law in the County of Santa Barbara for a sex offender suffering from terminal liver cancer who would otherwise be homeless.

Janice has helped to reunite families by negotiating revised parole conditions that allow registered citizens to live with their spouses and/or children.  Janice also represented California RSOL at the August 2015 National Conference of State Legislators and has made presentations to the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice and California Sex Offender Management Board.

Previously, Janice served as an attorney for the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Air Force at Los Angeles Air Force Base and in the Pentagon and NASA in Greenbelt, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
