I am not condoning what he did The abduction charge was ridiculous because he did not "abduct" anyone. I have affidavits from the people involved.
The prosecutors were the ones that came up with those charges Now that he is out of prison for drug trafficking, he is being put on the sex offender registry as a non-sexual child offender! I don't understand it! How can they ruin his life like that?????? Noname2bad Findlay,OH on October 14, 7: Once you a sex offender even after you've done your time and are off parole you still are not free still have no rights.
It's like being a person with out a country. Is there anything that can be done about this? Paul Smithingell Owosso MI. He moved to Ohio in Since the reclassification of the law, he has to register as a sex offender. Can explain to me why? Is there anything he can do? Can he get this appealed? Molly Columbus, oh on January 9, 9: Scott Ohio on January 22, 7: At first, all offenders were re-classified under the Adam Walsh Act which carries a three-tier classification , but then a court ruling determined that was unconstitutional.
Pike County Prosecutor Rob Junk anticipates his office will see some motions filed on past cases, but not an overwhelming amount. Cases where any of the issues are present will not automatically be altered. Defendants will need to file a motion for a change.
Sex offenders seeking more information about the rulings and how to file something in their case can contact their individual attorneys or the Office of the Ohio Public Defender at or visit www.
I hope this helps anyone who thinks it is automatically done for them.. You still have to fight the fight GoFigure PA on December 16, Everyone who is "unconstitutionally" in the Tier system still is. No one has moved back to anything, whether recalled to court to be Judicially classed from a Tier level to a Megan's Law classification as they should have been in the first place.
Too many have been lumped into Tier 3 since the AWA was passed simply by a code of law which was not based on any empirical evidence. They would have been "Oriented" under Megan's Law. Now they sit in the "worst of the worst" classification for now quite unfairly. Extremely Disgruntled Ohio on April 3, Placing them under laws that weren't even in effect when they committed their crimes.
Many were classed as predators because judges didn't have guidelines then and saw all offenders as predators. They are registering every 90 days for life and are probably the least dangerous because there were no guidelines.
Reallypissed Ohio on February 20, 7: Apparently as the author here states that "those who were convicted" before that date, which is NOT what the Williams decision stated, all the the Prosecutors and the aG are subscribing to the wrong statement.
Someone HINT needs to research this ongoing error! Extremely Disgruntled Ohio on February 18, 1: It does show what a mess Ohio's law makers and Attorney General have made of the registry. Mary Kendall on October 25, 6: Reconsideration was because DeWine said on his website that he wouldn't appeal it, makes sense now because he really can't appeal it, the OSC ruled it was against the Ohio Const, not the USConst which makes it stay as a State Court's interpretation.
No FED jurisdiction allowed in State affairs. Extremely Disgruntled Ohio on September 27, 1: Also "More than 26, Ohioans convicted of sex crimes before will be moved back to Ohio's less rigid sex-offender registry system. Anyone after that has to deal with the consequences on the books at the time of the offense. Whether fair or not. Those affected who have been sentenced to 3 years prison are already out of prison and on the registry already.
Extremely Disgruntled Ohio on July 27, 6: If they deemed it USC, then the feds rule. This ruling only affects crimes before that date that were sentenced after that same date.
Some are even off their PRC. I believe that the NY system is fair. Only level 2 habitual equiv. Level 1's are NOT. Reporting yes, posted not. Only the one's we "need to worry or be concerned about" are posted publicly. Public Enlightenment is needed. Not only is it unconstitutional, it does not protect the public. It makes the state more dangerous. JacksontheLion on July 13, 6: The Feds maintain that retroactive punishment is legal for sex offenders, as is banishment, exile and civil commitment.
