Reply To: In denying Snyder petition, Supreme Court upholds Sixth Circuit ruling


Timothy L Davis

Receiving the news, I saw a glimmer of hope. Reading the blog discussing the decision, I no longer see the glimmer. At this point in my life and my health, I was just wanting to be able to die at home rather than become too old and ill to meet the registration requirements in my state. What you are basically saying is the Supreme Court system has not even agreed that retro-active implementation of the Sex Offender Registry or changes made to Sex Offender Registry requirements after Alaska vs Doe, are recognized as punitive by the Federal Courts. In my case, an 8 year sentence already lasting 30, there is still no glimmer of hope in sight.
