@ Paul,
Cary my friend has completed his original sentence years ago and was only still on the registry due to SORNA being applied retroactively. Now that SORNA cannot be applied retroactively, my friend Cary will be removed from the registry. The new bill, called HB1952, only affects those who were sentenced to 25 and lifetime registrations.
What the Pa general assembly is trying to do is tell those who were sentenced under Megan’s Law 3 they will sentence them to an older version of Megan’s law due to the inability to sentence them to SORNA and Megan’s Law 3 was found to be illegal in Commonwealth v Neiman. Cary is in the clear once he receives his new paperwork.
Congrats and hello to my friend Cary!!!
