Leave Granted in Court of Appeals: People v. Brown – Subject to SORA When No Sexual Allegations

People v. Brown

Whether People v. Knox, 12 N.Y.3d 60 (2009) can constitutionally require an individual who commits an armed robbery in the presence of his minor relative to register as a sex offender, when a judicial finding made clear the offense involved “no sexual contact or motivation,” and New York state and federal courts have more recently exempted similarly-situated individuals from registration.
