Okla. Sup. Ct. to Hear Sex Offender Registry Case

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oral arguments are scheduled before the Oklahoma Supreme Court involving lawsuits challenging the state's sex offender registry.

Attorneys for three men convicted of different sex offenses in other states will argue their cases before the court on Tuesday. They want to block the state from forcing them to place their names on the state's sex offender registry.

Although each case is different, they all challenge the state's attempt to enforce its sex offender registration rules retroactively.

2 of the men claim they are exempt from the rules because their crimes pre-date the creation of the registry in 1989. The other was required to register for 10 years when he was sentenced and is challenging the state's attempt to make him register longer following legislative amendments to the registry rules.
