IN: Sex Offenders Sue Over Indiana Registry Requirement

[US News]

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Three men have filed a lawsuit over an Indiana requirement that they register as sex offenders when moving to the state, saying they’re being treated differently than other residents in similar situations.

Patrick Rice, Adam Bash and Scott Rush all were convicted out of state and before the enactment of the Indiana Sex Offender Registration Act, The Indianapolis Star reported. The men’s lawsuit says that in accordance with an Indiana Supreme Court ruling, the Department of Correction does not typically require sex offenders convicted before the act went into effect to register, provided they have never left the state. But the state does require offenders who have temporarily left Indiana or are moving to Indiana to register.

    The Privileges and Immunities Clause of Section 2 of the 14th Ammendment states that “the citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states.”

    They should prevail.

    Wait, wasn’t this article already posted a week or so ago?

    OK, here it is. Different article, but the same case.

    Like I said in response to that previous article, I might be moving to Indiana, depending on how this shakes out. Even though Indiana is one of the last places on earth I’d want to live.

  3. David Kennerly, Not Fully Contained

    I had not heard of this type of provision (such as in Indiana law) that requires residents to stay in the state or face registration. So when they say that it is invoked if they “leave the state” what are they talking about? Does leaving the state for a day or two subject them to registration? This is just crazy!
