Look at it this way. If you can’t leave Pa without asking permission, you can’t apply the time you were under that restriction towards registration time. It sucks but that is the law they made. The idea being if they weren’t nice by giving you the “Privledge” of not being locked up, you would have been. Just like your rehabilitation time towards being crime free does not start until you are finished with probation/ parole. Once again, the idea being it is a privledge to be serving your sentence on the outside.
