Currently laws of sentancing in Ohio are not stiff enough to rehabiltate sexually oriented offenders. First time offenders typically receive the minimum sentance which means little time served. Child molesters typically serve 60 months. Rapists serve 51 months. These offenders are warehoused without any rehabilitation programs, and then released to go on with their lives. The current registration laws are easy to get by as weel. They have to register and remain register for 10 years, but nobody checks to make sure the offender stays current on their registration so they couold move and possibly never get caught.
I am a college student with a major in criminal justice. I almost was a victim of a sexual assault, and I also recently found out that a sexually oriented offender that have twice been convicted of rape once of a minor, is living a little to close for comfort. I found that out by accident, had I not wondered upon a web site I would have never known.
