Sex offenses that require registration

At the law firm of Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, our attorneys are dedicated to developing the best possible defenses for each of our clients. This level of commitment can be especially pivotal for cases which fall under Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law, as they can carry high-stakes legal consequences.  

The Pennsylvania State Police explain that, under Megan’s Law, the department must keep a register of those who were convicted of certain types of sex crimes. These include rape, sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, institutional sexual assault, indecent assault and aggravated indecent assault. Some sex crimes that fall under Megan’s Law specifically involve minors, such as statutory sexual assault, incest of a minor, promoting prostitution of a minor, sexual abuse of children and sexual exploitation of children. 

According to the PSP, it is an offense for someone to knowingly fail to register with the department if he or she is required to do so. It is also an offense if sex offenders do not properly verify their addresses, do not allow themselves to be photographed as the law requires, or do not provide accurate information at the time of registration.

When a person is facing a sex crime conviction, the potential consequences can feel very scary. The attorneys at our law firm understand this, and they will work hard to clear your good name so you can move on with your life.
