I currently have to register in Ohio. I was originally given 10 years, then it was changed to 25 by the Adam Walsh Act. The Ohio Supreme Court (in the Boydke case) required that it be changed back to 10 years, thank goodness. I will be off (assuming the government doesn't find another way to screw us) in about 3 years, so I am started to look at all options then. So my question is basically that if after someone is released from registration, and moves to another state, can the "new" state require registration? For example, if in 3 years when Ohio says I'm done, and then I find a job in another state (say one that has the Adam Walsh Act), could they decide to put me back on? I've notice on most state websites, they basically state that if someone is currently required to register in another state, then they would have to in the "new" state, but nothing refers to if they are no longer required to register in their "old" state.
Thank you for any advice (or reference) you can provide, and for all the hard work that it put into this site. I really appreciate it..
