      I wis you were right, Alienated. But, unfortunately, that is not so.

      This case was decided on the basis of the Maryland Constitution and what it says about retroactivity and punishment. While this story does not fill things out, it has to be presumed that the Maryland court found that the state Constitution has stiffer standards than the federal on this question, because the federal courts have already ruled that registration can be applied retroactively because it is not punishment.

      Unfortunately, the California high court has ruled that California’s constitution is essentially the same thing as the federal on this question. Thus, the Maryland decision could not be extend to us.
