Adams v. Pa. State Police

The Commonwealth Court rejected the petitioner’s application to declare that he was not required to register as a sex offender under SORNA I. The petitioner was placed on the original Megan’s Law when he was sentenced in 1998. Over the years, he was subject to Megan’s Law I, Megan’s Law II, Megan’s Law III, and eventually SORNA I. The Commonwealth Court held that SORNA I continued the lifetime registration requirements of Megan’s Law III and did not increase the requirements. Thus there was no constitutional violation.
