Survivor Input: Sex Offender Registry

As the media reports on this issue, we want to make sure it’s clear that no laws are changing on this issue this week. The Ohio Criminal Justice Recodification Committee met 11/17/16 to review a 4,000 page draft of recommended changes to Ohio’s criminal code, including proposed changes to the sex offender registry. Once voted upon, a bill needs to be introduced and go through the normal legislative process of hearings in the Ohio House and Ohio Senate, etc.


The Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence exists because we and so many others have it in our hearts that one day, we will end sexual violence in the state of Ohio. Together, we can make this a reality, because together, #WeAreOAESV
