Sex Offender Registry News

An Indiana man convicted of child solicitation in 2010 is taking his case to the Indiana Supreme Court. He is challenging a law passed in 2015 that makes it a felony for him to enter school property. For the first 5 years he was granted permission to enter school property to attend his son’s school activities, but in 2015, with the passage of Indiana Code section 35-42-4-14, that stopped.

Notably, that same law, which also prohibited sex offenders from attending a church that included a school was challenged and overturned recently.

The plaintiff claims the ban constitutes retroactive punishment because the restriction didn’t exist at the time of his offense.
