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


I have a very straight-forward question. I am on Michigan’s registry (Conviction in 2004. Jail time plus probation which ended successfully in 2009) I was originally given 25 yrs on the registry, which was extended to life in 2011.

My question is this: Does the Sixth’s decision apply to me or, am I still bound by these changes because I was still ‘on paper’ when they were instituted. I guess what I’m asking here is, Which date is the pertinent one with regard to the Sixth’s decision, my conviction date of 2004 or my date of release from probation in 2009?

I fully realize that the wheels of justice grind exceedingly slowly but, given my specific dates, does anyone think I might have a remote chance of getting my 25 yr. out date back?
