Commonwealth v. Anderson

The defendant file a petition seeking collateral relief against his criminal convictions pursuant to the Post Conviction Relief Act. He claimed in his PCRA petition that his sentence to lifetime registration under Act 10. But he filed his PCRA petition about four years after his judgments of sentence became file. The Superior Court held that the PCRA petition was untimely and was properly dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. The defendant’s reliance on Commonwealth v. Muniz, 164 A.3d 1189 (Pa. 2017) was unavailing, because it has not been ruled to apply retroactively.
