Reply To: Ohio poised to remove thousands from registry

Jeremy Heady

While I do agree any lessening of registry restrictions are a good thing, I am a little concerned about what will be left in Ohio. Do they use individualized assessments for tier categories? It’s probably still offense based which is flawed. Also, there still seems to be a consensus with these politicians that registering the supposed high risk does any good at all. It is well documented that the registry enhances risk factors. Now, with this change, those registrants will face even more oppression as they attempt to find housing and jobs because the law will now say they are the worst of the worst. I’ve said this before many times in many forums, but when a person is released into society after serving their sentence, they should be given the tools to succeed and change their life around. Anything else is a recipe for disaster.
