Reply To: SCOTUS Denies to Hear Muniz


Hi Terry,
I hope you are right. However, if you look at the reasons why the Pa Supreme Court ruled SORNA as punitive, the General Assembly has taken those things out of HB 1952. They even add a way to petition to get removed from 1952 which Sorna did not have. I feel as though it is not cut and dry as to whether 1952 will be considered as punishment or a civil penalty.
That is my fear. I fear that with 1952 we will be restarting all over again with the court challenges. Not only that, but it will be years before we get a ruling on HB1952.
