Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Southern District of Ohio at Cincinnati.
No. 1:16-cv-00443—Michael R. Barrett, District Judge.
Argued: January 24, 2018
Decided and Filed: April 11, 2018
Before: COLE, Chief Judge; SILER and COOK, Circuit Judges.
COOK, Circuit Judge. Due to her conviction for sexual battery, Julie Hautzenroeder
must forever comply with Ohio’s sex offender registration and notification laws. After her
release from prison and community control, Hautzenroeder filed a habeas petition under 28
U.S.C. § 2254 challenging her conviction with its attendant ongoing reporting burden. The
district court dismissed the petition, deciding that it lacked jurisdiction under § 2254 because
Hautzenroeder was no longer “in custody.” Hautzenroeder timely appealed, and we AFFIRM.
