PENNSYLVANIA: COURT WON’T REVIVE PENNSYLVANIA PREDATOR LAW
The Supreme Court refused to revive a Pennsylvania law requiring some sex offenders be designated sexually violent predators which subjects them to lifetime registration and public notice of their address. The court rejected appeals in which prosecutors argued that the state could assume people convicted of certain crimes are violent predators unless they have proven otherwise. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court calling the
presumption constitutionally repugnant struck down the law.
