Ohio v Hale Reversed : OH - SB-10 (The Adam Walsh Act) declared constitutional, trial court reversed.

The Court of Appeals Richland County, Ohio, 5th Appellate District reversed the trial court decision which held that, the changes made by SB-10 (Adam Walsh Act) were unconstitutional.

In a decision June 30, 2009, the appellate court, on four assignments of error, reversed the trial court decision and sent the case back to the trial court for further proceedings consistent with its opinion. The full decision by the Ohio Court of Appeals is here.

However, the Ohio Supreme court will be the ultimate arbiter.
