Name: People v. Cox
Case #: D032205
District 4 DCA
Division: 1
Opinion Date: 01/07/2002
Subsequent History: Rev. denied 3/20/02.

It is not a defense to failing to register as a sex offender (Pen. Code, sec. 290, subds.(a)(1), (f), (g)(2)) that one forgot to register, if one has been possessed of actual knowledge of the requirement to register. [Editor’s note: look for contrary cases that say that “wilfulness” requires actual knowledge.]
