Reply To: SCOTUS Denies to Hear Muniz


A friend of mine was living in a trailer park with his parents. The owner of the trailer park found out he was on Megan’s Law and told his parents they had to kick him out. They refused. So he told them all of you have to get out. So they did. My friend was in the process of getting a ride to the PSP when they came and got him for not reporting his new address. The neighbors at the trailer park reported him. This happened on July 20, 2017. The judge last week threw out the case on the basis that Muniz invalidated registration requirements for Pre- Sorna people. Now I would NOT recommend anyone abscond from their reporting requirements, but this case shows the courts are interpreting the Muniz decision as there is no Megan’s Law registry for Pre-Sorna people.
I for one will stay in compliance until I am told I do not have to in writing. However, it is heartwarming to see a judge refuse to enforce the registry on a Pre Sorna person.
