Interstate commerce has its limits in criminal law

May 12, 2008 Interstate commerce has its limits in criminal law

Bill of Rights (From public domain.)

Praised be Orlando federal judge Gregory Presnell for delineating the limits of federal jurisdiction in criminal prosecutions, in finding the federal sex offender statute unconstitutional when it comes to criminalizing the failure to register with a state agency as a sex offender. Thanks to a fellow listserv member for bringing this Powers opinion to my attention. Jon Katz
