Sex Offender Denied Bail after Violating Megan’s Law

Brian Lee Goshorn, a Chambersburg man previously convicted on child pornography charges, has been arrested for a Megan’s Law violation. He was charged with felony failure to verify with Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) after allegedly missing his verification window. Despite police attempts to contact him, Goshorn did not respond to phone calls or voicemails.

Goshorn’s last verification was in February 2022, but he allegedly claimed he never received any mail regarding his window for verification this year, despite police confirming the correct address with him. During an interview with PSP Troopers in the driveway of his home, Goshorn allegedly admitted he didn’t answer phone calls from numbers he didn’t know and wasn’t good with electronics, which is why he didn’t have a voicemail set up.

Goshorn’s bail was denied by Magisterial District Court Judge Kristin Nicklas because no conditions of bail were available to protect the community or defendant. He is currently behind bars awaiting his preliminary hearing on March 14th. Goshorn’s previous conviction of possession of child pornography and sexual abuse of children in 2019 had designated him as a Tier 1 offender through PSP systems.
