Ohio State law professor sees SCOTUS striking SO restrictions soon

In addition to the criminal-justice cases the Court has already agreed to hear, there’s always the chance that it could add more to its docket as the term progresses. Berman, the Ohio State University law professor, said one area he expects the justices to revisit soon is post-conviction restrictions on sex offenders, which can affect their housing, employment, and travel. Courts typically give such constraints broad latitude. But in Packingham v. North Carolina earlier this year, the Court overturned a state law that forbid people convicted of sex-related crimes from using social-media websites on First Amendment grounds.  (Source)
