Look at the positive of this, first we are fortunate the Court took this up a Quikly as they have because sometime it takes years to get to this point. Also with all the support from PLF and this organization we should all feel fortunate for there dedication, and with the written record being the only evidence being concidered now and most of be writen by PLF and like wise oranizations , I belive the judge all ready knows This is a violation of so many differant laws of the Constitution that the Court just dont want to hear arguments from the DOJ now they just want figure out if its time to put a stop to the injustice and Yes this decision will affect every regestrant in one way or the other.

This SORNA legislation seems like a big issue, because a lot of people on this forum are worried about it. But do you know who could possibly benefit from it? Our Wisconsin friends out there. Since the state doesn’t require in person registration, it uses this “loophole” to force people that left the state to continue to register & update their information online or by mail. But if Wisconsin adopts federal SORNA standards that require in person registration, they’d be forbidden to force those standards on out of state/or country registrants. And I don’t see the state allowing a dual registration scheme that exempts out of staters from registering in person, therefore Wisconsin will have to let them go. So what do you think Wisconsinites?

Janet, be sure to interpret the legal matters to us in simple terms so that we know how it will effect us. For instance, some of us want to know if these decisions will make it so that we can petition to be removed from a county sex offender list after only ten years if the matter has been reduced to a misdemeanor and expunged.
