US Laws: More Harm Than Good
Exempt Youth Sex Offenders From Registration Laws
It is the opinion of this site that elements of the Federal Sex Offender Laws are Unconstitutional and supports the following rulings and studies.:
Nevada Federal District Court September 2008
Ohio Supreme Court July 2011
In State v. Williams, 2011-Ohio-3374, the Court ruled that applying the harsher registration and reporting requirements of the Adam Walsh Act, 2007 Am.Sub.S.B. No. 10, to sex offenders who committed acts prior to January 1, 2008 violated Section 28, Article II of the Ohio Constitution, which prohibits the enactment of retroactive laws.
“Following the enactment of S.B. 10, all doubt has been removed: R.C. Chapter 2950 is punitive.
- State v. Williams
Alaskas Supreme Court 2008
Because ASORA's registration, disclosure, and dissemination provisions
violate the protection against ex post facto laws afforded by the Alaska Constitution as
it applies to defendants who committed their crimes before the legislature enacted
ASORA, we hold that AS 12.63.100(3) cannot be applied to Doe. We consequently
REVERSE the final judgment for the state, and REMAND for entry of judgment for Doe. Registration or providing only for distribution of otherwise public information from an
offender's criminal file would have been an ex post facto law. And because we conclude
that ASORA is an ex post facto law under the same standard for reviewing ex post facto
claims under the Alaska Constitution that courts apply under the Federal Constitution,
we decline to adopt the standard Doe advocates.

(Washington, DC, May 1, 2013) – Harsh public registration laws often punish youth sex offenders for life and do little to protect public safety, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. A web of federal and state laws apply to people under 18 who have committed any of a wide range of sex offenses, from the very serious, like rape, to the relatively innocuous, such as public nudity.
The 111-page report, “Raised on the Registry: The Irreparable Harm of Placing Children on Sex Offender Registries in the US,” details the harm public registration laws cause for youth sex offenders. The laws, which can apply for decades or even a lifetime and are layered on top of time in prison or juvenile detention, require placing offenders’ personal information on online registries, often making them targets for harassment, humiliation, and even violence. The laws also severely restrict where, and with whom, youth sex offenders may live, work, attend school, or even spend time.
