The Supreme Court of the United States today denied a petition from the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office to review a July decision from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that found the state’s current sex offender registration law was punishment and therefore could not be applied retroactively under ex post facto constitutional grounds!

The ruling from the court was brief:

PENNSYLVANIA V. MUNIZ, JOSE M.
The motion of respondent for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.
Just like the Snyder case out of the 6th Circuit last year, the highest nation in the land has refused to review a case that found the sex offender registry constitutes punishment. This is good news!
