When is Failing to Register as a Sex Offender Not a Crime?

           In the case of Carr v. United States, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act ("SORNA") does not apply to sex offenders who traveled to another state or country before that law went into effect in 2006.  An article that I posted on my website, Federal Criminal Lawyer:  Frequently Asked Questions, examines the facts of the Carr case as well as the reason why the Supreme Court ruled in Mr. Carr’s favor.
