Gregory v. Sexual Offender Registration Review BoardAnnotate this Case
Scott Gregory was a convicted sexual offender, and in 2013, the Sexual Offender Registration Review Board classified him as a sexually dangerous predator. Gregory timely asked the Board to reevaluate his classification, but the Board denied his request. Gregory then petitioned the Superior Court for judicial review of his classification, but the superior court affirmed the decision of the Board. In the course of these administrative and judicial proceedings, Gregory had opportunities to submit favorable documentary evidence to both the Board and the superior court, but he never has been afforded an evidentiary hearing on the question of his classification. Gregory appealed the superior court's judgment, asserting that the refusal of an evidentiary hearing violated due process. The Supreme Court agreed, and for that reason, it reversed the judgment and remanded for further proceedings.
