Matthew Brent Leonhard has posted The Adam Walsh Act and Tribes: One Lawyer's Perspective (Sex Offender Law Report, Vol. 12, No. 3, 2011) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
M. Brent Leonhard is the Deputy Attorney General for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, the first tribal jurisdiction (along with the State of Ohio) to be designated by the Department of Justice as having substantially implemented the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act requirements. He is also a principle author of the Model Tribal Sex Offender Registration Code. In this brief article he expresses his personal opinions about the Adam Walsh Act and implementation issues tribes face, concluding that the Act needs to be amended.
