ABSTRACT

From the Introduction: "The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit (Fourth Circuit) in 'United States v. Wass' recently overturned a district court decision that dismissed on constitutional grounds an indictment for violation of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). The Fourth Circuit concluded that the district court disregarded binding precedents in finding that the application of SORNA to Wass undermined the defendant's nondelegation doctrine and ex post facto violation arguments."
