A lawyer tells the State Supreme Court his client shouldn’t be forced to abide by the state sexual offender registration list, because he has served his sentence and lived peacefully with his neighbors. Attorney James Wyrsch represents a Jackson County resident convicted in 1983 for statutory rape who completed his sentence 10 years later. Wyrsch says his client shouldn’t have to register as a sexual offender, because he was convicted before Megan’s law went into effect. But an assistant attorney general argues it doesn’t matter than the resident was convicted nearly 20 years ago. She says he remains a sex offender and the public has a right to know where he is living.
