Defendant's conviction for failing to register in accordance with the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) is affirmed where: 1) sex offenders with pre-SORNA convictions, like defendant, had a duty to register even if the jurisdiction in which the offense occurred had not implemented SORNA; 2) defendant's guilty plea waived his right to claim that he was physically unable to register under SORNA; and 3) defendant had adequate notice of his duty to register.
