By FindLaw Staff on July 23, 2009 3:10 PM

Defendant's conviction for failure to register in accordance with the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) is affirmed where SORNA does not exceed Congress's powers under the Commerce Clause because it forbids sex offenders from using the channels of interstate commerce to evade their registration requirements.
