Understanding Megan’s Law: Freedom, Felony, or Folly?

Hosted by Milestone HCQU West.

This course is designed to help caretakers, service providers, administrators, amongst others, begin to understand the sex offender registration requirements in Pennsylvania. Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities have been impacted by this system since its inception. People supporting these individuals are often left perplexed about the procedure.

This training will provide participants with a basic understanding of the current Megan’s Law system. Current court proceedings, motions, and advocacies will also be discussed. This course will examine the history of sex offender registration in the United States and will examine the evolution of registration and notification to date. Attendees will be able to identify the original purpose, the problems, and the benefits of such a public system. The impact of the notification system on the community, risk levels of the individuals, quality of life of the individuals, and the family of the individuals will also be explored. The issues surrounding interstate travel may also be investigated. Through the use of quality illustration, multi-media methods, and years of experience within the field, the presentation will deliver a greater understanding. Persons working with individuals convicted of a sexual offense may gain knowledge to guide the individual in taking the appropriate measures and remaining cognizant of the consequences involved.
