US v. Under Seal, 12-4055

Judgment of the district court which imposed, as a condition of defendant's juvenile delinquent supervision, that defendant-juvenile register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), is affirmed, where district court did not err in imposing the requirement because: 1) Congress, in enacting SORNA, intentionally carved out a class of juveniles from the Federal Juvenile Delinquency Act's confidentiality provisions; and 2) SORNA's registration requirements are not punitive as applied to defendant, and do not violate the Eighth Amendment's prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment.
