PORTLAND, Maine (AP) Maine’s supreme court is taking up the issue of whether the state’s online sex offender registry can be applied retroactively.

The Supreme Judicial Court will hear arguments Tuesday in two separate cases involving convicted sex offenders who didn’t register as required by a change in state law. Lower court judges sided with the men, ruling that the state law is unconstitutional.
