Did the NJ decision overturn all such NJ convictions? If so, what is your goal: to have your obligation to register on the sex offender registry in VA canceled? The effect of the NJ decision on your conviction is something about which you should get an opinion from a New Jersey attorney, and, presumably, a declaration from a New Jersey court. You probably won't be able to walk into Virginia State Police with a copy of the NJ decision in hand and tell them to take your name off the registry. You should consult an attorney in VA as well. He or she may be able to work with you and an New Jersey lawyer and then address the VA situation. If your conviction was in 1989, are you covered by VA's sex offender registry statute? Another good reason to consult with an attorney. You won't get a complete answer in this forum.
