9:45 a.m. 45S03-1301-CR-9. Following his 1998 conviction for criminal deviate conduct, Becker had been registering annually as a sex offender pursuant to Indiana Code Section 11-8-8-14(a). The statute now requires that a person who is a “sexually violent predator” must register more frequently and continue registration for life. In 2008, when Becker sought relief from registration requirements, the trial court ordered that Becker was required to register annually. In 2011, Becker and the State executed an agreed entry, approved by the trial court, to the effect that Becker was no longer required to register. Less than a month later, the Department of Correction intervened and asserted that Becker was a sexually violent predator by operation of law, and was required to register for life. The trial court agreed, vacated the 2011 agreed order and the 2008 order, and ruled that Becker remains under an obligation to register as a sexually violent predator. The Court of Appeals affirmed in a not-for-publication decision without addressing whether the 2008 order, which was not appealed, was res judicata.
