US v. George, No. 08-30339
Defendant's conviction for failure to register as a sex offender under the Sex Offender Notification and Registration Act (SORNA) is affirmed where an individual's obligation to register is not dependent on a state's implementation of SORNA, and thus the fact that Washington had not implemented SORNA at the time of defendant's sexual abuse of a minor conviction was irrelevant.
