Commonwealth v. Lacombe

In a stunning turn of events, the Supreme Court in Commonwealth v. Lacombe ruled that Subchapter I of the SORNA is nonpunitive and thus applying it to individuals who were committed crimes and were sentenced before its enactment does not violate the the prohibition on ex post facto laws. This breaks with Commonwealth v. Muniz, which the same court decided in 2017.
