After you serve your prison sentence, you may also be required to register as a sex offender with the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) under Megan’s Law. As a registered sex offender, you will be monitored, possibly for the rest of your life.
Once registered as a convicted sex offender, the PSP will require you to report your residence, employment, and any student status multiple times yearly. Failure to report such information could lead to a new, indeterminate period of incarceration in prison. You will also not be permitted to visit certain areas where children might be present.
Moreover, the PSP will notify the public and local law enforcement of your whereabouts in the community and your criminal history. If you were convicted of a violent sexual offense, residents of the community in which you reside may be sent an instructional letter and court documents about your crime, and 100 or more community notification flyers may be distributed throughout your neighborhood.
Under such conditions, it can be impossible to ever assimilate into society, find suitable housing or a job, and have a peaceful life.
