    1. This is on going. It has now been submitted to the Supreme court of Indiana and has also been supplemented by a second person making a very similar argument to which the court has accepted his filing as well. I encourage you to look into it and encourage anyone else who may be in the same situation to submit a Amici brief (a friend of the court) to assist with this horrible law. If you are unaware of the possible implications of this it could be there door to finding all of SORN unconstitutional in the entire country. I ask you all to review this and take the steps to stop this horrible thing called SORNA

  1. He lost this case because the lawyer didn’t know that with sex offender laws, the Judges have to FIRST declare the law punitive and then the rest can happen. Until they do that first, it’s a loss everytime. Shame on him!!

    1. RPSABG if you go to MY IN CASE you can look up where in the original case under appeal the judges actually did declare that the SORN application to Kirby was punitive. This was the first instance in the country where a court had found that SORN was punitive in form and not as in a civil matter to protect the interest of the public. Also if you look at seek to find the Information from the United States Psychiatric association there have been many studies that show that SORNA in reality does nothing to protect anyone and is only a draw on society by causing harm to the individuals and their family from success and long term stability.
