A person convicted of a sex offense would be barred from living within 1000 feet of a school under a bill approved by the House yesterday and sent to the Senate. The bill expand the state’s Megan’s law, which requires convicted sex offenders to register with local police. The House bill also permit landlords to evict anyone living within 1000 feet of a school who is on the state registry of sexual offenders. In addition, it specifies that sex offense convictions in other nations be covered by Ohio law. The Bill incorporates a number of recommendation made by a committee Governor Taft appointed after the strangling death of 14-year-old Kristen Jackson of Wooster last September.
