My question involves criminal law for the state of: Texas
An individual was placed on Sex Offender Registry stemming from deferred adjudication probation for Criminal Solicitation of Minor under Texas Statute 15.031 in Texas. The individual completes the States requirement for the duration of registration and also completes their probation successfully.
The state then informs the registrant in writing that their registration requirements are complete and no longer required to be a registered sex offender.
Now, comes along the new federal law and the question to this group is if anyone knows the correct answer if the individual that has completed all the terms of the state is now required to re-register under SORNA/Adam Walsh Act if they have already exited the justice system (from probation and registration requirements)?
