Garrision introduces sexual predator ban bill
Rep. Jennifer Garrison, (D) 93rd District
(WOUB) - A southeast Ohio state representative will introduce a bill to ban the most serious sex offenders from being on school, pre-school and daycare properties.

State Representative Jennifer Garrison says this ban is intended to ensure parents that their children are protected from the most dangerous sexual predators.

Garrison says if the bill passes, those who violate this ban would be charged with a fifth degree felony.

The Democrat says this bill coincides with a piece of Senate legislation that is close to being finalized.

That bill classifies sexual offenders into three categories including tier 1, tier 2 and tier 3 and categorizes tier 3 as the most serious of sexually motivated crimes.
