Ohio Megan's Law
Getting its name from Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was enacted into federal law in 1995. Megan's Law requires that all states
develop a procedure for notifying the public when a sexual offender is relocated into their community.
Megan was merely seven years old when a repeat sexual predator that lived accross the street from her family, kidnapped, violently rapped, and murdered her. It was concluded that if her family or other residents in the communtiy had been aware that a previous sexual offender was residing in their community, this crime would have been prevented. On that train of thought, the U.S. Congress enacted the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", also known as Megan's Law, without any opposition.
Since the law was enacted, Ohio has gone out of its way to protect its citizens the most up to date information relating to past sexual offenders and their whereabouts. The bill has proven that though sex crimes are still a occuring in the United States, offenses committed by prior offenders are on a downturn.
