Doe v. Brown, No. D053982

A sex offender who has obtained the relief provided in section 1203.4 is subject to the Megan's Law Internet publication provisions because he or she is required to register in accordance with the Sex Offender Registration Act, and the Internet publication provisions of section 290.46 apply, by the terms of that statute, to those persons who "are required to register" pursuant to the Sex Offender Registration Act.  Thus, trial court did not err in denying petitioner's writ of mandate.
