NEW HAMPSHIRE SUPREME COURT: SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY IS PUNITIVE AND UNFAIR

BRENNAN LENEHAN LAWYERS CONTRIBUTE TO THE EFFORT TO MAKE THE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY FAIR 

Today the New Hampshire Supreme Court decided that certain aspects of the NH Sex Offender Registry violate the constitutional prohibition against retrospective and ex post facto laws. In other words lifetime sex offender reigistration  is an unfair punishment for some former sex offenders convicted before the registry laws were enacted. Brennan Lenehan lawyers, Mike Iacopino, Iryna Dore and Jenna Bergeron filed a "friend of the court" brief for the New Hampshire Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers in support of a fairer sex offender registry. The Court agreed with the arguments contained in the Brennan Lenehan brief.  The case is John Doe v. State of New Hampshire, Docket No. 2013-496. You can read the Court's decision here:
