If you or a loved one has been convicted of committing a crime of a sexual nature in Pennsylvania, part of the punishment involves having to register as a sex offender with the Pennsylvania state police.
If the sex crime was defined by the Pennsylvania criminal justice system as violent in nature, you may be required to remain registered for your entire life. And while this registration can have serious negative financial, familial and social impact on your life, failure to register can result in up to 10 years' jail time and a fine of up to $25,000.
If you have been labeled by the state as a sexually violent predator or been given lifetime sex offender registration requirements and you fail to register, you could spend up to 20 years in prison.
