Appeal from United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Little Rock.
For United States of America, Plaintiff - Appellee: Kristin Huntington Bryant, Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Arkansas, Little Rock, AR.
Henry J. Billiot, Defendant - Appellant, Pro se, England, AR.
For Henry J. Billiot, Defendant - Appellant: Justin Eisele, Justin Eisele, Greenbelt, MD.
Before WOLLMAN and GRUENDER, Circuit Judges, and GRITZNER, District Judge.
GRITZNER, District Judge.
Henry Billiot entered a conditional plea of guilty to a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2250, traveling in interstate commerce and failing to register as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) requires. The district court sentenced Billiot to a term of imprisonment of time served and five years supervised release, which included sex-offender treatment as a special condition. Billiot contends his conviction violates the Ex Post Facto Clause of the U.S. Constitution, and he challenges the district court's imposition of the special condition of supervised release. Having jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, we affirm.
The relevant facts are not in dispute. Billiot was convicted in Louisiana state court on three counts of aggravated incest on August 7, 1996, and on one count of aggravated incest on June 4, 1997. The Louisiana state court sentenced Billiot to five years imprisonment for his first conviction and seven concurrent years of imprisonment
on his second conviction. Billiot was released from Louisiana state custody in February 2000.
At the time of Billiot's aggravated incest convictions in 1996 and 1997, Louisiana law required convicted sex offenders to register for ten years after release from imprisonment. La. Rev. Stat. § 15:544 (1995) (amended 2012); 1995 La. Sess. Law Serv. Act 928 (S.B. 1263). Subsequent amendments to Louisiana law impose lifetime registration and notification requirements on certain offenders. La. Rev. Stat. § 15:544(B)(2)(a); see generally Smith v. State,84 So.3d ...
