Bad Decision out of 6th Circuit – SORNA obligations continue beyond state obligations

August 27, 2020, 8:59 am

Yesterday, The 6th Circuit issued a disappointing opinion, holding that a sex offender’s obligations under SORNA is independent of any duties under state law. In other words, even if someone’s obligations to register under STATE law have been terminated, if they are still subject to registration under FEDERAL law, they must continue to register.

This creates a confusion, since there is no “Federal Registry” to register with, only the state. As for Florida, since our requirements go so above and beyond the requirements under SORNA (we call it SORNA on steriods) this has no current impact.

It’s time the Federal Government came in and created a uniform registry with uniform standards, or better yet, it’s time the Supreme Court abolished this mess altogether.
