OH Appeals Court Ruling on AWA

April 27, 2009

CIVIL APPEAL FROM CLERMONT COUNTY COURT OF COMMON PLEAS, CASE NO. CA2008-05-057
Case No. 2007-CVH-02365 (Underlying Case No. 1996-CR-05237)

Barry C. Moran vs, State of Ohio (PDF)

Petitioner-appellant, Barry C. Moran, appeals the decision of the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas denying his petition challenging the constitutionality of his sexual offender reclassification.

Of course, these cowardly judges ruled against the appeal on every count, refusing once again to acknowledge that these new laws constitute “punishment” under the law:
“Ohio’s Adam Walsh Act is not a criminal, punitive statutory scheme and does
not constitute punishment for purposes of the double jeopardy clauses.”

Try living under these restrictions, Mr. Justices, and then tell us that it’s not punishment!
