Unconstitutional with a capital U. Hope v IDOC (7th Cir., 2021).

I wouldn’t move to Washington- or most states for that matter- if they paid me a million dollars.

“Now the King County Sheriff’s Office is tasked with contacting people they already deregistered and telling them they need to re-register as a sex offender.”

That sounds like a bunch of bullshit.

Anyone got a copy of the ruling? Did they use SORNA as justification?

This seems to run counter to the recent federal CoA ruling in Indiana that ACSOL linked to last week:

It’s slightly different, because it’s about the timing of the offense vs. Indiana’s SORA legislation, but this feels the same to me, in principle? I’m not a lawyer though, and as my name indicates, I simply can’t wrap my head around these sex offender rules.

Confused Man:
You aren’t confused. You are absolutely right. This is the case I alluded to in my previous post. I don’t know how to post a link.
The good thing is that Washington is in the 9th Circuit. Registrants have a better chance of prevailing in the 9th than the 7th.

@TS. I’m not a theology major just a common people like yourself & Detroit and my state of VA is SORNA and who knows how these packet bundles are expidited or put together. S.O.N.R.A. is only initials, some buy into it some don’t, or were is the true value in this AMERICA. Sure one should be proud to even have constutitional lawyers for each state trying to figure all this registry out and believe me its not easy.

Even my dad when he worked for a utility company had to know a bunch of utility laws to present cases in court and yes he got sick of going to court all the time, Water leaks, gas leaks in other folks yards, pipe lines, etc. Even upsetting the flow of traffic at times. I’m sure one gets the picture. So even a bit of law comes in handy.

Seems everybody wants to sue someone today. I’ll just be glad its all over for many. Hey if some of the folks I knew in VA had a chance to be party goers out in CA their wouldn’t be two many left at a class reunion. Course that was many years ago. Yes one can be a sex offender or other offender. What do you think this Presidental issue is all about or these people that are gun ho for who know’s what. sort of sicking that government has fallen this far.

You want to avoid these crazy laws and live out the remainder of your life in relative peace? Move to another country. Otherwise, you are stuck with it.

@ Way to long. You know this is Martin Luther King day and yes he was a good man that said, and change is going to come, and we all should remember another document .. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men were created equal that they are endowed by the Creator with certain inalienable rights and I’m sure all can fill in the rest of this understanding. So should we all talk about wisdom than or this fraud on many or this deception or should we all just play house party and just leave it alone.

Now if one is dedicated to a cause than one should press forward as many in different states and yes stand up and speak up. Who ever likes playing dirty pool in much of this. So with a bit of wisdom and understanding and faith I’m sure we can all press on in true understanding of this registry.

Hey this is still a beginning of a new year. A lot of things can be accomplish or has just run its course.

I’m sorry that was unalienable right in the Declearation of Independence and yes I’ve been to Jefferson’s Home several times, and this the pursuit of happiness is for many in this sex stigma/ordeal. Sure we can all wait it out, go back to incarcerating oneself, making oneself missrible, or maybe helping others. Yes we can all stand up and write letters or whatever. Hey if the pilgrims weren’t bold they would of never found America and as far as faith all one needs is a little mustard seed faith and yes even that goes a long way.

We may call people lazy but getting something done with the right measure is always good and yes I’m been down in the dungeon before and having one’s father see you behind bar’s isn’t a pretty picture and is sort of depressing. This in no way could compare to a small drug, DUI charge or even stealing from a store if thats the case. Now I grant you that their is more dubious cases so thats why we should all come together from state to state on this and get much of this registry eliminated in an orderly fashion.
