Many people are aware that individuals convicted of a sex crime are subject to mandatory registration requirements.

Changes To Pennsylvania Law

Current sex offender registration laws require convicted persons to register with the state and report to state authorities regularly after their release from prison. The reporting requirement could last 15 years or remain in effect for the entire life of the offender. Pennsylvania’s law was expanded to involve longer registration periods for a wider range of crimes late in 2011.

More recently, the courts determined that some of these changes may have been unconstitutional because the registration requirements were applied retroactively. The Law Offices of Joseph Lesniak, LLC, has the knowledge and experience to handle sex offender registration removal cases for individuals affected by such legislative changes.

Long-Term Consequences

Legislators maintain that registration is a collateral consequence of being convicted of a sex crime and is not intended to be punitive. In practice, however, it has severe punitive ramifications, preventing individuals from moving on and forming productive relationships with their communities after they have served their prison sentence. If you have been accused of a sex crime, it is important to choose a lawyer like Joseph Lesniak who fully understands the long-term consequences of conviction and mandatory registration and who will do everything possible to mitigate these damages.
