House bills would punish worst sex offenders
(2007-06-07)
(WOUB) - Sex offenders are the target of a number of bills working their way through the Ohio House.

One bill would let authorities monitor the whereabouts of the worst sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

Another proposed law would eliminate time limits for prosecuting sex offenses.

Lawmakers also want to require that certain sex offenders provide authorities with personal information such as their Social Security number, license plate numbers and photographs of themselves and their cars.

The legislation would match an act passed by Congress last year.

States that do not comply with the Adam Walsh Act risk losing federal grants that pay for the tracking of predators.
