UNITED STATES V. JUVENILE MALE: EVALUATION OF THE RETROACTIVE APPLICATION OF SEX OFFENDER REGISTRATION LAWS TO FORMER JUVENILE OFFENDERS
AbstractThe objective of this note is to analyze United States v. Juvenile Male, the recent Ninth Circuit case, and the constitutionality of retroactive application of sex offender registry laws covering individuals who were adjudicated as juveniles. Part II of this note identifies unique aspects of the juvenile adjudication system, including the federal statutory framework governing juvenile proceedings. Part III examines juvenile registration requirements under SORNA. Next, Part IV evaluates the United States Supreme Court jurisprudence on Ex Post Facto violations. Part V discusses United States v. Juvenile Male and the constitutional implications of SORNA. Finally, Part VI summarizes practical solutions by proposing a case-by-case approach.
