Oregon Appellate Court, August 11, 2021
Summarized by Rankin Johnson, OCDLA
DEFENDANT'S STATEMENTS - Voluntariness
Sex-offender registration forms are admissible in future prosecution to prove knowledge of the reporting requirement. Affirmed.
Defendant unsuccessfully argued that he had been required to sign the forms, and thus had not done so voluntarily. The court held that the forms, in which defendant was required to admit he knew of the registration requirement, were regulatory in nature, and unlikely to produce an incriminating response.

SUPERVISION - No-contact provisions
Creating new Facebook pages and posting about the victim after being blocked by the victim was sufficient to prove violation of no-contact provision. Affirmed.
