Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act Conviction Affirmed

In US v. Fuller, No. 09-1437, the court affirmed defendant's conviction under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), holding that 1) SORNA applied upon enactment to sex offenders whose predicate sex offense convictions predate SORNA; and 2) violation of SORNA's criminal enforcement provision was a general intent crime.


As the court wrote:  "Defendant-Appellant Ross A. Fuller, III, ("Fuller") appeals from an April 2, 2009, judgment of conviction entered in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York (Scullin, J.), following a conditional guilty plea to a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2250, the criminal enforcement provision of the federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act ("SORNA" or the "Act"), 42 U.S.C. § 16901 et seq."
