Jim,

Pa is going to claim the new law is civil and thus can be appilied retroactively. Muniz declared SORNA a criminal penalty. So if it is civil, that means the people they just let off can be put back on if they do choose. I think they are going to choose to apply it to those who haven’t finished their time aka the 10 yr 15 yr 25 yr people who haven’t finished their original sentence. And of course, the lifers.
