Senior Citizen Sex Offender Jailed For Megans Law Violation

by Alex Lloyd Gross

When someone is convicted of a sex crime against children, they are required to register with the PA State Police . An offender must verify the information with the state police every 10years and if they move , within three days, they must re register their information.  It is a stigma that some people will try anything to avoid.  Your name and address is on the internet for the world to see.

In 2013 Robert Kipp, 75, was convicted of possessing child pornography. He was given a federal prison sentence and put on probation.  He was also required to register as a sex offender.  In August 2021,  he was convicted of failure to register as a sex offender in 2021 stemming from his absconding  supervised release in 2020. he was sentenced to serve a year and a half in federal prison by United States District Judge Jeffrey L. Schmehl.

“Non-compliance regarding sex offender registration is, quite simply, not an option,” said Eric Gartner, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. “We will continue to aggressively enforce these laws purposed to protect our children as part of a deterrence framework supporting Project Safe Childhood.”
