On January 22, 2018 SCOTUS denied hearing Muniz.

The advocates in PA and NARSOL are working to develop a strategy to support those impacted by Muniz.

The Pennsylvania Prison Society and the Pennsylvania Defenders Association are both recommending to all of their clients that they sit tight in terms of getting off the registry unless they are in prison for violating SORNA itself.

Notice the next lines with attention:
The reasoning behind this recommendation is that (a) relief obtained in the short term might quickly be taken back when a new law is enacted, and (b) flooding the courts will only pressure the Senate to adopt HB 1952 (the “legislative fix” intended to contain as many people as possible on the registry).

The strategies now being examined are focused on helping as many individuals on the PA registry as possible in the most efficient and effective way.

Theses are not my words – Did you read that a short term of the registry was said? What is that short time off the registry? Does any one have a comment?
