How The Walsh Act & Megan’s Law May Affect You
Pennsylvania law has been modified to comply with the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act (often referred to as the Walsh Act). This federal statute organizes sex offenders into three tiers and requires individuals to update their whereabouts at intervals determined by the tier of their offense.
Additionally, our firm remains mindful of Megan’s Law requirements for public notification of sex offender registry status that goes with any type of guilty plea. The collateral consequences of these statutes can devastate an individual’s ability to seek employment or housing.
Unfortunately, while employment law prohibits discrimination against things like sex, nationality, and sexual orientation, it does not protect against criminal records. We aim to ensure you will never have to face rejection from a job or housing prospect because of a prison sentence due to your alleged crimes. We will aggressively protect your future and your exposure to these devastating consequences.
