Megan's Law questions in Ohio
The 2nd Ohio District Court of Appeals, in January, struck down the part of Megan's Law that required a sexual offender designation for any adult convicted of kidnapping a child. Apparently, the law required application of sexual offender status to convicted kidnappers, regardless of whether there was a sexual component to the kidnapping. The Montgomery County prosecutor's office has now announced plans to appeal that ruling (hoping to reinstate the requirement), because kidnapping carries with it a "high risk" of sexual abuse. I'm not sure I buy the argument, so I'll be interested to see this case progress to the State Supreme Court.
