The state’s highest court today threw out the conviction of a serial sex offender for failing to register his address with the Boston police within two days of his release from jail. The judges said the state Sex Offender Registry Board did not have the authority to institute the two-day requirement.

Mind you this came a few days after Malcom S Maker re-offended. Which everyone expected him to do, as Level 3 means he will undoubtedly re-offend.

So I can see why the Registry Board wanted to pop the guy when he did not make his whereabouts known pretty quickly after being released. Guess the Legislature has a loop-hole to close if they want to keep a tight reign on these folks.
