Ohio Megan's Law
Getting its name from Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was passed into federal law in 1995. Megans Law requires that every state
put a method in place for alerting the general public when a sexual offender is relocated into their community.
Megan was just seven years old when a repeat sex offender that was living accross the street from her family, abducted, violently rapped, and murdered her. It was decided that if her family or other community members had been aware that a previous sexual predator was living amongst them, this crime would have been avoided. With that in mind, the U.S. Congress passed the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", nicknamed Megan's Law, without any protests.
Since the law was put into effect, Ohio has gone out of its way to protect its residents the most up to date information relevant to convicted sex offenders and their place of residence. The legislation has shown that while sexual offenses are still a occuring in the U.S., crimes committed by previous offenders are on a regression.
The information accesible through the passing of Megan's Law has continued to be a major benefit in keeping one's family safe from the dangers of sexual offenses.
