Big Risk: Changes to Ohio's Sex Offender Laws

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Ohio's sex offender laws are about to loosen up.

The Ohio Supreme Court just threw out sections of a new, stronger sex offender law on Thursday.

This means potentially hundreds of local sex offenders who were sentenced before 2008 may no longer have to appear on a sex offender registry.

Just how lousy of an idea is this?

Anthony Sowell, the man accused of murdering eleven women would be among those who fall under the looser guidelines.
