CASE ENTRY

State in the Interest of C.K.

A New Jersey law requiring juveniles convicted of certain sex offenses to register as sex offenders and notify neighbors of their status—for life—is unconstitutional, says the New Jersey Supreme Court. Henceforth, such offenders will have an opportunity to convince a judge that they have been rehabilitated after 15 years. (H/t: Sentencing Law and Policy blog.)
