Com v Hainesworth

12-13-2013 Pennsylvania:

Com v Hainesworth

Appellant, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, appeals from an order entered on December 19, 2012, by the Honorable John Blahovec of the Court of Common Pleas of Westmoreland County.

That order states that Appellee, Deono Terrell Hainesworth, is not required to register as a sex offender under Act 111 of 2011, 42 Pa.C.S. § 9799.10, et. seq., also known as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).

The Commonwealth contends that the trial court erred in determining that Hainesworth is not subject to the registration requirements of SORNA.

After careful review, we conclude that the court did not err when it ordered specific enforcement of the parties’ plea bargain. Accordingly, we affirm.
