Sex offender gets 5-10 years for ignoring Megan’s Law

LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A convicted sex offender will spend up to 10 years in prison for ignoring requirements that he register his address with state police under Megan’s Law.

Harry D. Bleacher, 32, was ordered to serve 5-10 years last week after pleading guilty to five felony counts, according to the Lancaster County district attorney’s office.

Bleacher was required to register his address for the rest of his life after a 2003 conviction for sexual abuse of a child. He was charged last year, for the second time in recent years, after authorities said he gave police a false address and phone number.

He also kept Yahoo and Facebook accounts, which are forbidden under court order, and he asked a woman to lie to police for him about his activities.

Bleacher also skipped the verdict at his trial in 2012, also for felony counts of failure to comply with Megan’s Law. The verdict was announced without him.
