Lemmon v Harris

6-28-2011 Indiana:

Lemmon v Harris (Need to read facts of case in decision)

A sex offender who committed his crimes before the Legislature created the status of "sexually violent predator" challenges that status being subsequently imposed upon him "by operation of law." We conclude that his status has in fact changed by operation of law and that this change does not violate Indiana‘s prohibition on ex post facto laws or doctrine of separation of powers.
