Reply To: Victory in New Jersey: part of Megan’s Law ruled unconstitutional

James Coghill

Excellent ruling. I hope everyone out there realizes that the reasons given for removing a juvenile from the registry would also apply to adults. The United States Constitution clearly states that Congress shall enact no law regarding a class of people. In the same light Congress does not have the power to enact a law to create a class of people and that is exactly what the registry does. Furthermore it creates a class of people from which there is no legal provisions to escape it. By any other definition that is called slavery which was abolished by the 14th amendment.
