U.S. District Court: SEX OFFENDER.

Doe v. Lee. 132 F.Supp.2d 57 (D.Conn. 2001). A purportedly non-dangerous sex offender brought due process and ex post facto challenges to the Connecticut Sex Offender Registry Act. The district court held that the act violated due process since it provided no procedure to be heard prior to infringing on a non-dangerous offender's liberty interest. The court also found that the act did not have a punitive purpose and was not so punitive in fact that it violates the ex post facto clause. The act provided for Internet dissemination of registrant profiles, without differentiating between dangerous and non-dangerous offenders. (Connecticut Sex Offender Registry Act)
