It’s is going to be interesting to see what non punitive scheme the General Assembly comes up with to keep everyone on a registry.

The registry is on its last gasp and it won’t be long before the whole registry will be found unconstitutional. Just have to bide our time until then.
I think Pa needs to create a process that allows people to remove their criminal convictions once 10-20 years have passed. Obviously, the more serious the crime, the longer you have to be crime free.
It is in the interest of the offender AND society to allow the offender to become a productive memeber of society. I know way to many people who can’t make more than 10-12/hr becuase 30 years ago they wrote a bad check.
In order to fully heal, you need to be able to rebuild.
