Seems likes those people in Ohio are bring out their crystal ball or predicting the future of an individual. Guess the sex offender or offender is in a class by themselves. Someone should use common sense in these things but as most know it seems the human race is about money and not thinking things thru but than I’m not paid to think only those with a masters degree are paid to think.

Dump the child residential restriction zones and the registry of sex offenders period. EVIDENCE SHOWS NEITHER ONE OF THESE SO CALLED NONE PUNITIVE MEASURES PROTECT CHILDREN AT ALL! APPLIED RETROACTIVELY WITH A NEW CHARGE FOR NONE COMPLIANCE IS PUNISHMENT.

This is great news! Hopefully the lawmakers are smart enough to follow the recommendations though. I won’t be holding my breath on that.
In another article, one of the recommendations is to remove Level 1s and possibly Level 2s from the registry altogether. Good things are happening in Ohio!
I am worried about Ohio legislators complaining about registrants relocating to Ohio after they become the least restrictive state in the nation. This is why I strongly advocate this to be a national issue rather than a state or local issue. When the neighboring states of Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia see their population of registrants decrease, it may also cause those states to increase restrictions to keep them moving to Ohio. As an Indiana registrant, this is very troubling.

On the bright side- at least there’s good data showing residency restrictions don’t work.
