US v. Juvenile Male, 09-30330

In consolidated appeals in which three juvenile defendants who pleaded true to a charge of aggravated sexual abuse with children challenged their conditions of probation or supervision requiring registration under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), the district courts' imposition of the sex offender registration conditions is affirmed, where: 1) the appeals were not moot; 2) the district courts properly applied SORNA's registration requirements to the juvenile defendants; and 3) subjecting juvenile sex offenders to SORNA registration does not violate the equal protection clause, the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, the right against self-incrimination, substantive due process, procedural due process, or the right to effective counsel.
