19-year-old man registered with Wyoming's Putative Father Registry in 2006, within that state's time limits after finding out he was to become a father. O'Dea's unborn child's mother moved to Utah, and because she told him that she had done so, the state mandates he comply with Utah's laws within 20 days of being notified. He didn't register in Utah in time and the child was placed for adoption.
