People v. Thompson, No. A123269
Trial court's finding that defendant was subject to mandatory registration as a sex offender under Penal Code section 290 based on a sodomy conviction is reversed and remanded as an order imposing mandatory sex offender registration on defendant due to his conviction for a mutually voluntary act of sodomy with a 17-year-old minor violates his right to equal protection, as guaranteed by the federal and California Constitutions.
