Oklahoma sex offender Ruling
I am finding the info on this ruling "confusing". One article list the ruling as only encompassing offenders due to the date/ state of conviction and the registry not being applicable only due to those two criteria? Another article infers each offender will be reviewed with the caveat that the State needs to focus on the worst of the worst?? After reading bits and peices of the Starkey versus Oklahoma the court case centered around unlawful application of registery length  being applied retroactively, not taking into consideration the "heinousness" of the crime??? So which is it? When Oklahoma instituted a "Teir level rating" his "Mr. Starkey's" threat level jumped to three. This ruling could have horrendous repercussions or it could be a good thing. I havent figured it out yet..
