US v. Hester, No. 08-4665

By FindLaw Staff on December 16, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's conviction for traveling in interstate commerce and failing to register or update his sex offender registration in violation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) is affirmed where the fact that defendant had no actual notice of SORNA was not sufficient to render his prosecution pursuant to that statute a violation of his due process rights.
