A local attorney, who specializes in juvenile cases, today will ask the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to take a second look at a law requiring a life time of registration for juveniles who commit particular sexual offenses.
For the second time in three months, a state court judge has ruled that Pennsylvania’s juvenile sex offender registration requirement is unconstitutional.
In June, the US Supreme Court ruled that mandatory sentence of life without parole is unconstitutional when it comes to juveniles. The deadline for juvenile lifers who want to appeal their sentence is Friday.
