People v. Luansing, No. B210413

Trial court order denying defendant's motion to terminate his obligation to register as a sex offender based on his conviction for oral copulation with a person under the age of 16 is reversed and remanded where subjecting defendant to the mandatory sex offender registration violated his equal protection rights, since the nature of the sexual act alone determined whether the defendant received mandatory sex offender registration or if the trial court had discretion.
