Asked 5 months ago - Ferndale, MI

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?
