Read Transcript of RM138: SORNA Explained

On this week’s episode, we go in depth into SORNA. We tried to cover all of the relevant angles that we could find about SORNA. We had a few listener questions about transferring to a new state, and our position on the registry. Hot take: We’re against it. And then bounce around misc news items that seemed interesting.

Listener questions:

    Just discovered yall. Great job! Pretty much had this exact question about SORNA and i think you answered it about my registration requirement expiring under SORNA after 10 years even my tier 1 offense says 15. I read (i am in Texas) an attorneys page that said i would have to petition the court and undergo and evaluation that would determine if i could get off after the 10 years and am wondering if that was a scam as you said and where i could find that information that says i will just be off after the 10 years if i don’t get into anymore trouble. Also, is there a list of States that say if i would or would not be required to register after that 10 years? I am wanting to maybe move to some better weather. Thank you for all that you do
