In Doe v. Otte, the Ninth Circuit addressed the constitutionality of Alaska's sex offender registration and notification statute. In finding that Alaska's statute violated the Ex Post Facto Clause, the Ninth Circuit focused on the legislature's intent and the statute's punitive effect in deciding how far a state, and more specifically Alaska, can go to inform its citizens of the whereabouts of released sex offenders.
