Legal questions swirl around Megan’s Law in Pennsylvania

Jason A. Davies broke into the Wilson home of a woman he had never met and raped her, threatening to kill her if she screamed.

He faces sentencing Friday in Northampton County Court under a plea agreement that recommends six to 12 years in state prison. But when he is one day released, should he be required to register as a sex offender?

That’s a question that until recently had an easy answer: Since 1995, Pennsylvania has had Megan’s Law, which seeks to protect communities by requiring sex offenders to register with the state police, or face arrest if they fail to do so.  (Source)
