COUNSEL FOR APPELLEE
VICE PRESIDING JUDGE
Tyrell Deonta Burns was tried by jury and convicted of Count
I, Violation of Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders
Registration Act; and Count IV, Possession of Drug
Paraphernalia, in the District Court of Nowata County, Case
No. CF-2015-151.  In accordance with the jury's
recommendation the Honorable Curtis L. DeLapp sentenced
Appellant to ten (10) years imprisonment (Count I); and one
(1) year imprisonment and a fine of $1000.00 (Count IV), to
run concurrently. Appellant appeals from these convictions

III. State Exhibits 29-32, purported copies of

the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders Registration Act is
excessive where Appellant was at least partially compliant.
After thorough consideration of the entire record before us,
including the original record, transcripts, exhibits and
briefs, we find that the convictions must be reversed with
instructions to dismiss.
In Proposition I Appellant argues the State failed to show he
had notice that he was required to register with local law
enforcement under the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders
Registration Act, 57 O.S.2011, § 594. Notice is a basic
requirement of due process. Horn v. State, 2009 OK
CR 7, ¶ 21, 204 P.3d 777, 783.
Prior to determining if notice was proven to the jury, we
must determine if the Act requires notice to the offender.
The Act provides that ...
