Commonwealth v. Anderson

Pennsylvania Superior Court

June 17, 2020

The defendant filed a petition seeking collateral relief from his criminal convictions pursuant to the Post Conviction Relief Act. He claimed that his sentence to lifetime registration under Act 10 was illegal. But he filed his PCRA petition about four years after his judgments of sentence became final. 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.
