Sounds like Kansas decided to add all felons to its registry to get a bigger piece of the SORNA pie.
KS has taken it to a whole new level where it has been in court previously. It pub’d one opinion saying it was a problem and then reversing itself with another. Good synopsis here on the entire deal:
Good Lord, everyone regardless of offense must register every three months and pay a twenty dollar fee each time? I don’t see how they could push and exploit people this far without some serious rebellion happening soon.
KORA requires transients to update their registration every 30 days at a cost of $20 each time. How is charging $240 per year not punishment? Also, all KORA registrant must have a specially-marked Drivers License or ID. And all KORA Registrants must submit 21-day Advance Travel Notificatons.
