McKEES ROCKS, Pa. - A woman on the Megan’s Law list, even though she never committed a sex crime, broke down while talking to Channel 11 Friday.
“I am not a sex offender. I would never hurt a child,” said Victoria Balogh.
Balogh was in tears as she was about to face a judge in McKees Rocks for failing to register as a sex offender. Police said she moved without notifying state police.
Four years ago, Balogh was convicted of interference with custody of children. That crime falls under the newest version of Megan's Law, and Balogh must register as a real sex offender.
“Seventeen years of probation for not doing anything but trying to help a little boy that was in diaper and just a pair of socks?" Balogh questioned the ramifications.
“If she changes any information we have to record, she needs to notify us right away," said trooper Robin Mungo.
Although Balogh feels singled out, there are hundreds in our area who never committed a sex crime yet they, too, are now registered as sex offenders.
