Justice Department releases final SORNA guidelines

As effectively spotlighted by Sex Crimes and TalkLeft, the US Department of Justice released the final Sex Offender Registration and Notification ACT (SORNA) Guidelines, which are designed to assist local jurisdictions with efforts to implement the sex offender registration rules appearing in the Adam Walsh Act passed back in 2006.  The full final SORNA guidelines (which run 99 pages) can be accessed here in pdf (and here electronically), and DOJ has this shorter FAQ about the guidelines.
