Media advisory: KU law expert available to discuss KS Supreme Court’s consideration of offender registry case

Thursday, September 11, 2014

LAWRENCE — Corey Rayburn Yung, a University of Kansas School of Law professor with expertise in criminal law and sex crimes, is available to speak with the media about today’s Kansas Supreme Court hearing in Doe v. Thompson. The case addresses the constitutionality of the state’s Kansas Offender Registration Act, a 2011 law that retroactively lengthened the time one has to remain on the criminal offender registry. The plaintiff in the case is a convicted child molester in Johnson County. The U.S. Constitution bans “ex post facto,” or after-the-fact, punishments.

YUNG CAN DISCUSS: how similar cases have been resolved in other jurisdictions and any issues related to the ex post facto clause in relation to sex offender restrictions.

To schedule an interview, contact Mindie Paget at mpaget@ku.edu or 785-864-9205.

Yung is regularly consulted by the media and has been quoted in the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post, among other outlets.
