Commonwealth v. Jeffrey Williams 2009 PA Super 121 (7/002/2009)

Topic: PCRA – Timeliness – Megan’s Law Registration

Summary: Megan’s Law registration requirements are considered collateral consequences and the period of registration does not extend the time within which an appellant is permitted to file a PCRA petition. (In other words, once an appellant has completed his sentence, he is no longer eligible for PCRA relief, regardless of whether he is a registered Megan’s Law offender.)
