Megan’s Law Summary


Not all sex offenders prohibited from living near schools

Published by Lorie Garland, Assistant V.P., Legal Services
Summary: Ohio’s Megan’s Law was amended in 2003 to prohibit certain sexually oriented offenders from establishing or occupying a residential premise that is within 1,000 feet of any school property. Ohio’s landlord-tenant laws and eviction provisions were also amended to permit a landlord to evict a tenant in violation of this provision. Subsequently, county prosecutors were given the authority to evict offenders who violated this provision.
