Did it just start when the AWA came into effect in January of 2008?
If somebody was convicted of a criminal sexual conduct crime, prior to this, will their name be on this list?
Seems that retroactive laws are nil in Michigan...
Or will this become a court battle in the Michigan Supreme Court?
You may be referring to the DHS abuse/neglect registry. A CSC conviction will most likely result in listing on the sex offender registry, but not necessarily the abuse/neglect registry.
More information on this registry can be found here: https://www.michigan.gov/dhs/0,4562,7-124-7119_...
