Juvenile Registration under SORNA in Pennsylvania

SORNA greatly increased the registration time and requirements from the previous requirements in Megan's Law.  Similarly, under SORNA in Pennsylvania, the requirements for when a juvenile must register also increased.  

There are three circumstances which cause a juvenile to register pursuant to SORNA:

(1)the juvenile was adjudicated delinquent in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, or an attempt, solicitation, or conspiracy to one of those offenses AND the child was fourteen years of age or older at the time of the offense.

(2) the juvenile must register if he was adjudicated delinquent in another jurisdiction or foreing country as a consequence of having committed an offense similar to the offenses already listed.

(3) the juvenile must register if he is required to register in another jurisdiction or foreign country's registration, even if the reason for the registration is not for an offense already mention, if he resides in, is a student in, or is employed in, or homeless in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Another important aspect is that juvenile offenders must register for life.

If you or someone you love has been charged with a sexual offense, it is important to immediately contact an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney: set up a free consultation with the attorneys at the Kelly Law Firm.
