Reply To: SCOTUS Denies to Hear Muniz

Chris in Baltimore

Hello, Im new to this site and not familiar with a lot of ideas and concepts to which this article/ post refers, so I’m hoping someone could answer a basic question; Did the PA Supreme court rule that being placed on the state’s s.o. registry is a form of punishment and therefore not constitutional? Is it ever constitutional to continue punishing ANY convicted felon after their time in prison/probation is up and they’ve pay their so-called debt to society? And why is it okay for retroactively placed regisrants to get removed but not the rest of us? Thanks for any clarification anyone might offer.
