I have read over Pennsylvania House bill 1952. And I have some questions.
I have 3 docket numbers,( 1 conviction). Two of the 3 docket incidents OCURRED prior to Megan’s law 1,(1996).
Because of the charges of I.D.S.I., on one of the aforementioned dockets. It trigger a PRE SENTENCING INVESTIGATION, ( p.s.i),To determine if I was a SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATOR. At this hearing, the COMMONWEALTH’S OWN PSYCOLOGIST BRUCE MAPES, stated, ” he does not fit the CRITERIA, HE DOES NOT FIT THE STATUE, HE IS AN ANOMALY, I am calling him one. And by that statement, I became classified as a S.V.P.
Now this bill States, more or less, any crime committed prior to APRIL 1996, it can not be used to trigger any registration. The crimes must to of occurred after APRIL 1996, yet prior to December 2012, Which my other remaining docket does, And that charge of INDECENT ASSAULT is a misdemeanor 1. Carrying a 10 year registration, which I don’t mind doing.
BUT HOW DO I APPEAL THE S.V.P. DESIGNATION?IF IT WAS TRIGGERED BY THE PRE-MEGAN’S LAW EVENTS.
