KS: Court opinion affirms states’ authority to require sex offender registries

[ – 8/24/20]

TOPEKA – A ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit has reaffirmed the authority of states to maintain sex offender registries to inform the public and rejected the claim that registries are a form of punishment, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Monday.

The appellate ruling last week reversed a 2017 lower court decision striking down the Colorado sex offender registry as unconstitutional. The case involved a claim brought by three individuals against the director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

“While the offender registry laws in the states differ, the appellate court recognized the sovereign state interests in these laws and applied a legal test that reaffirms the states’ ability to notify Kansans of this important public safety information,” Schmidt said. “We will remain diligent to protect the Kansas law from legal attacks.”

      I don’t think there was a separate decision. KS is just saying that this decision re-affirmed that the way KS does things for registration is constitutional and the Attorney General of KS has successfully defended this as being constitutional because he filed Amici Curiae brief about it.

        You are serious and on target. Here KS merely maintains its jurisdictional sovereignty implicated by state’s rights to develop law & decide for themselves despite federal authorities impunity upon a neighbor state. Such thing s are integral to keeping of a 50 republic. KS & CO view marijuana very differently as each is free to do.

    Anything to make the Attorney Generals look against those monsters!! The tangle that we weave is getting frightening; yet it’s exciting to see the public getting fearful and we get re-elected.

    The sex offender registries are big brother.
