J. Schafer reported:

"The Kansas Supreme Court is considering whether a convicted child molester can keep his name off the state's official list of registered sex offenders. An attorney for the state argued that the high court should overturn a lower court's ruling, which removed a Lenexa man's name from the list. At issue is whether new laws can be applied retroactively to sex offenders, forcing their names to remain on the registry for a longer periods of time. Professor Yung says the outcome of this case has implications for other sex offenders whose listings on the sex offender registry were retroactively lengthened when the state changed the law in 2011."
