Suffolk Superior Court, September 29, 2015

General  Laws  c. 6, § 178K (2)(e), which subjects any level three sex offender who moves to a rest home or other regulated long-term care facility to criminal penalties, violates due process on its face.   It is incompatible with the requirements of due process because it does not provide sex offenders with an individualized evidentiary hearing prior to depriving them of their rights, the process expressed in Doe v. Police Commissioner of Boston, 460 Mass. 342 (2011).
