On 1/22/18, Supreme Court of the U.S. refused to hear an appeal from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision in Muniz though it is the law of Pennsylvania.
This past summer, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court declared SORNA (Sexual Offender Registration and Notification Act) punitive in Commonwealth v. Muniz, but left the question of "what now?" unanswered. Since then, lower and intermediate courts have started to fill in the gaps, but many issues remain unclear.
This video encore CLE program addresses the Muniz decision, its progeny in the trial and superior courts and the effect on thousands of registrants. The program explores the remaining unanswered questions such as:
- Is Megan's Law II revived?
- What's the SVP (Sexually Violent Predator) process to designate a convicted sex offender?
- What might new legislation look like?
- How do we properly address registration issues moving forward with any active cases?
If you missed the live presentation, attend this video encore for a timely SORNA update.
