A person commits a felony of the first degree when that person engages in sexual intercourse with a complainant under the age of 16 years and that person is 11 or more years older than the complainant and the complainant and the person are not married to each other.
If you have been charged with a sexual offense, you will be fighting against several key factors. The criminal charges themselves are serious and you may be facing a lengthy prison sentence of up to 20 years in person. Just as important, you will also be fighting Megan’s Law, requiring you to register on Pennsylvania’s sex offender registry.

Are You Under Investigation For A Sex Offense?
We cannot put this more clearly – DO NOT answer any questions or allow the police or investigators to search your home or computer without a specific warrant. As soon as possible, get an experienced attorney from The Kelly Law Firm on your side. We will begin protecting your rights immediately.
Megan’s Law has made it mandatory for certain sex offenders to register their name and address for a period of at least 10 years, and possibly for life. In many ways, the sex offender registry is a harsher punishment than the actual jail sentence or fine.
Kelly Law is ready to help you fight aggressively to protect your future. We represent people charged with sex offenses, including offenses against children that carry Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law penalties.
