Crofoot v. HarrisAnnotate this Case
Plaintiff appealed the denial of his petition for a writ of mandate against defendants, alleging that he is not subject to sex offender registration in California, Pen. Code, 290, subd. (c), 290.005. The court concluded, among other things, that defendant is required to register as a sex offender in California based upon his Washington conviction of communicating with a child for "immoral purposes of a sexual nature;" the full faith and credit clause does not require California to terminate its lifetime registration requirement for plaintiff; and plaintiff's equal protection claim was forfeited for this appeal and is not ripe. The court reviewed plaintiff's remaining contentions and concluded that he has not shown grounds for reversal. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
