OH on Forefront of SORNA, Adam Walsh Disaster

Washington D. C - Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Justice announced today that Ohio and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation are the first two jurisdictions to substantially implement the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA), Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006.

This means that the disaster which has resulted within Ohio from these laws is a sign of what is to come to every other state in the nation. Therefore, the battle against these laws, which is being fought in every county and appellate district and which will be soon argued in the Ohio Supreme Court, will be a bellwether indicator of where the constitutional challenges against them will lead.
