Attorney General's Opinions:

Juvenile offenders; application of Kansas offender registration act and the juvenile offender information system. 97-101.


1. Under facts, application of registration and notification provisions of KSORA (K.S.A. 22-4901 et seq.) did not constitute cruel and unusual punishment. State v. Scott, 265 Kan. 1, 5, 961 P.2d 667 (1998).

2. Defendant erroneously required to submit DNA exemplars under K.S.A. 21-2511 but requirement upheld since court could have acted hereunder. State v. Patterson, 25 Kan. App. 2d 245, 252, 963 P.2d 436 (1998).

3. Specific intent is not necessary for there to be an offense committed under K.S.A. 22-4903. In re C.P.W., 289 Kan. 448, 213 P.3d 413 (2009).

4. Probation condition requiring defendant to post signs on house and car declaring his sex offender status not authorized. State v. Schad, 41 Kan. App. 2d 805, 206 P.3d 22 (2009).

5. Violent offender registration requirement qualifies as punishment and all supporting facts must be found by a jury, not a judge. State v. Charles, 304 Kan. 158, 178, 372 P.3d 1109 (2016).

6. Statute's vehicle registration mandate does not require an offender to register a vehicle of unknown ownership that the offender drove only one time. State v. Moler, 316 Kan. 565, 576, 519 P.3d 794 (2022).
