Forster, Maryland's former chief public defender, said being on the registry has proven to be punishment in addition to the prison time he served. "The only employment that he can find is usually something very menial, and even then, once they discover he's on the registry, he loses that job as well."Forster could not be reached for comment following the removal of Haines' name.

Brenda Jones, executive director of Families Advocating Intelligent Registries, hailed the decision to remove his name from the registry.

While his name remained on the registry, his case was appealed to Maryland's highest court.

Haines pleaded guilty in 2006 to one count of child sex abuse committed in 1984, when he was a junior high school teacher in Washington County.

But the Court of Appeals ruled that Haines, 53, should not be on the sex offender registry because it did not exist at the time of his crime.

Pepperdine University Law School hosted a symposium exploring the worst United States Supreme Court mistakes.

After the welcoming remarks, Professor Edward Larson delivered opening remarks about the concept and format of the event.“Supreme Mistakes: Exploring the Most Maligned Decisions in Supreme Court History” was a Pepperdine Law Review Symposium.

Haines accepted a plea agreement in 2006 that dropped a second-degree rape charge and other sex offense charges. He was sentenced to a 10-year prison term with all but 41/2 years suspended. And the court ordered him to register as a child sexual offender. In 2009 legislators expanded the registry parameters, and Haines was again ordered to register as a child sex offender, this time for 10 years.
