C.M. v. Pa. State Police

An en banc panel of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court denied the petitioner’s application for removal from Pennsylvania’s sex offender registry. The petitioner challenged the application of Subchapter I of SORNA II to him, arguing that he was not required to register under Megan’s Law II, which was in effect in various forms from 2000 until 2012, because he was incarcerated throughout that period and was not released from prison, thus triggering his registration requirement, until 2020. The Commonwealth Court ruled that the petitioner, “who was incarcerated on the effective date of Megan’s Law II, became obligated for lifetime registration on that date.”
