What is Megan's Law?
Also known as the Sexual Offender (Jacob Wetterling) Act of 1994, Megan's Law requires persons convicted of sex crimes against minors to notify local law enforcement of any address change or employment after release from custody. This imposing requirement may be enforced for a lengthy period, if not a lifetime. Failure to uphold this requirement can result in a felony charge.
Since sex offender registration and community notification are part of the procedures, individuals affected by this law are marked for everyone to see, making it extremely difficult to become integrated into any community. In essence, a sex crime conviction can condemn one to living a life of isolation and public shame, deprived of all kinds of basic human relations, which may be just as bad as incarceration, if not worse.
