Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law, 42 Pa.C.S § 9799.32(1), requires the State Police to create and maintain a registry of persons who reside, or is transient, work/carry on a vocation, or attend school in the Commonwealth and who have either been convicted of, entered a plea of guilty to, or have been adjudicated delinquent of Certain Sexual Offenses in Pennsylvania or another jurisdiction.
Under Megan’s Law, the whereabouts of convicted sexual offenders are tracked and notification is given to the public of the presence of a sexual offender in their community. However, this does not give authorities the right to harass those registered on the sex offender registry. Sex offenders may be monitored and required to report changes in their living arrangements and employment, however, sex offenders are still provided basic rights under the law.
