Nursing Homes Sex Offender Bill is Dead (Cincinnati, Ohio) : Bill To Protect Residents From Sex Offenders Dies.

Legislation designed to protect elderly people crashed and burn in the Ohio Senate. The Ohio bill called for care facilities to notify residents when registered sex offenders move into the homes.

After unanimous support in the house, the bill died this week in front of Senator Tim Grendell's Criminal Justice Committee in the Senate. Grendell said he wanted to know what kinds of facilities would be next.

Perhaps the Ohio Legislature is now finally worried about how much trouble they got into by passing Senate Bill 10 (Adam Walsh Act Laws), which is being challenged in every county of the state (over 3,000 legal court cases). Perhaps they finally are beginning to wake up and understand that they have to abide by our Constitution?
