The purpose of this site is to inform Ohio and United States citizens of Constitutional abuses by our elected officials and politicians. We will be silent no longer. We will hold these elected officials accountable for trampling Our Constitutional Rights !
Ohio Senate Bill 10, also known as the "Adam Walsh" law was furiously and irresponsibly enacted on January 1, 2008. Because the Ohio Legislature passed this law in a reactionary manner for politically correctness and to gain federal funding, they failed to responsibly review the legislation or study the impact, objections, nor constitutionality of the law. As a result, there are Constitutional challenges and court filings proceeding all over the state of Ohio which are challenging this legislation.
The law imposes retro-active restrictions and requirements on offenders who were either convicted of or pleaded guilty to any sexually related offense. Many of these offenders have satisfied all conditions, consequences and requirements of their offense, which may have occurred up to 10 years ago or more. Imposing new retro-active punishment on them constitutes a violation of the Ohio and United States Constitution with regard to its Double Jeopardy provision.
Yet this law imposes, among other things, a life-long registration requirement on them, meaning they are legally required to register with the local sheriff offices four times every year until they die to register every detail of their living conditions and location. Many of these people have fulfilled all previous registration requirements for a period up to 10 years already. This retro-active punishment is a violation of State and US Constitutional Rights, relating to Ex Post Facto provisions.
Beyond this, these offenders will now be re-classified in accordance with federal guidelines with no individual review by a court or judge, based solely on the offense which they committed. Universal re-classification of sex offenders into federal mandated tiers without the individual review before a court of law and judge is a violation of the Separation of Powers provision of the Ohio and United States Constitutions.
This law violates the ex post facto, double jeopardy, and separation of powers provisions
of the Ohio Constitution and the United States Constitution. And it constitutes breach of contract of original plea of the offenders. As the conditions of punishment are now changed years after the plea agreement was made.
We ask for your support in signing this online petition which will be forwarded to legislators to help revoke this unconstitutional law:
