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:
[04:57] If a person is trying to do an Interstate Compact transfer, and their supervising officer won’t initiate the transfer, is there a remedy to force them?

[10:12] How we can claim to be against the registry when we seem to be okay with the decision of the PA Supreme Court issued regarding subchapter I?

    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
