Greensburg sex offender sentenced to prison term
A Greensburg sex offender was sentenced Tuesday to two to four years in a state prison for failing to register a new address under Megan's Law requirements.
Derrick Edward Sullenberger was ordered by Judge Debra Pezze to report on March 18 for his sentence to begin.
Sullenberger, who turned 28 Tuesday, allegedly failed to notify state police of an address change in the summer of 2011. Sex offenders registered under Megan's Law are required to update police with a new address within three business days, according to the Megan's Law website.
He pleaded guilty Tuesday to failing to comply with the requirements.
Sullenberger was sentenced in December 2009 to five to 23 months and five years' probation after pleading guilty in September 2009 to indecent assault and corruption of minors. He was arrested in July 2009 for inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
