OH : A National Embarrassment

Ohio's draconian sex offender laws (Senate Bill 10, Adam Walsh Act, Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act) have become an national embarrassment. Ohio is the only state in the country to have substantially adopted the Adam Walsh Act provisions, after more than 3 years. Why is that ? Because most other states can see that these laws are impracticable, financially unsustainable , ineffective and riddled with constitutional violations. Yet, in Ohio, our illustrious General Assembly passed these laws unanimously on an emergency basis in 2007 in order to gain the 10% Byrne Funding, which amounts to a pittance when compared to the cost of implementation of these laws - not to mention the enormous cost the state is paying to defend these laws in courts in every county of the state !
