Sex offender removed from Pa. hospital during the birth of his child

December 4, 2019

Mageee Women's Hospital in Pittsburgh removed a registered sex offender from the facility during the birth of his child, according to an article on the WPXI website.

The man pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography in 2017, served 49 days in jail and was released on probation. He must register as a sex offender for 25 years, and he's not allowed to have unsupervised visits with his children.  

He told hospital security about his conviction. His counselor and probation officer told him he should alert security as a precaution. 

He was escorted off the property because hospital policy followed Megan's Law protocol. Megan's Law requires law enforcement authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders. The security offered to escort him to the room the next day, but he declined fearing that he might be arrested.
