If you were convicted of a sexual offense prior to certain amendments to Tennessee's Sexual Offender Registry Act, and are now required to comply with Tennessee's Sex Offender Registry retroactively, your Constitutional rights might be violated.
Enacted in January 1995, Tennessee's original Sexual Offender Registration and Monitoring Act has been amended countless times. Federal Courts are beginning to recognize that these subsequent amendments, applied retroactively, are punitive and violate the Ex Post Facto Clause of the United States Constitution. Don't take on this fight alone. Call Ryan C. Davis Law, PLLC to learn how an experienced Sex Offender Registry attorney can help you with your case.
Attorney Ryan Davis will help you fight the unconstitutional amendments to Tennessees Sex Offender Registry. Without an experienced Sex Offender Registry lawyer on your side, you could face prolonged punishment for a past sex offense conviction.
The date of your conviction will reveal what version of Tennessee's Sex Offender Registry was in place at the time of your sentencing. That version of the registry will help us determine any possible constitutional violations as a result of punishments imposed by subsequent amendments to the Tennessee Sexual Offender Registration and Monitoring Act.
While you may have a claim for a constitutional violation, any substantial noncompliance with the registry may limit the relief available to you. This substantial compliance may include any subsequent convictions you have had while on the registry.
Discussion of the Sex Offender Registry and its requirements during your plea hearing or sentencing may affect the possible relief you are entitled to.
Registration on another state's sexual offender registry may affect your ability to be removed from Tennessee's Sex Offender Registry, regardless of a legitimate Ex Post Facto or Due Process Claim.
