Doe v. Sex Offender Registry Board (Lawyers Weekly No. 11-030-15)

JOHN DOE, SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY BOARD NO. 291554 vs. SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY BOARD. No. 13-P-1703. APPEALS COURT OF MASSACHUSETTS November 13, 2014, Argued March 27, 2015, Decided PRIOR-HISTORY: Suffolk. Civil action commenced in the Superior Court Department on April 13, 2011. The case was heard by Frances A. McIntyre Click for Enhanced Coverage Linking Searches, J., on a motion for judgment on the pleadings. HEADNOTES-1

Sex OffenderSex Offender Registration and Community Notification ActEvidence, Sex offender, Expert opinion. Witness, Expert.

COUNSEL: Xiomara M. Hernández for the plaintiff.

Thomas M. Doyle for the defendant.

JUDGES: Present: Green, Wolohojian, & Blake, JJ. WOLOHOJIAN, J., dissenting.

OPINION BY: BLAKE

OPINION

Blake, J. The plaintiff, John Doe, challenges his final classification by the Sex Offender Registry Board (board) as a level three sex offender. He claims that the board’s decision was not supported by substantial evidence, primarily because the governing offense involved no physical contact or sexual component and, apart from that offense, Doe had no prior criminal record. We affirm.

Background. We summarize the facts found by the hearing examiner,1 supplemented by additional undisputed facts from the record. In October of 2009, Doe responded to a post on a social networking Web site from the twelve year old female victim seeking assistance running away from home. He initiated a series of online communications with her over a period of thirty or so days. In his electronic mail messages (e-mails) to the victim, Doe misrepresented his age as being twenty-five, rather than his actual age of thirty-two. Eventually, Doe arranged to travel from his home State of Virginia to Massachusetts, on a date certain, to pick up the victim, intending to return to Virginia with her by train, subway, and bus. To that end, he purchased one bus ticket in his name and one in that of the victim. He also instructed the victim to bring some money and her Social Security card. read more
