OH: Court sides with state in sex offender jurisdiction case

[wfmj.com – 12/3/20]

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The ability of a judge to hold a hearing on a juvenile’s sex offender classification status doesn’t automatically expire when the child turns 21, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.

At issue before the court was a Cincinnati-area defendant who sexually abused two young relatives when he was 14, according to court records. The defendant was convicted in juvenile court in 2011 and labeled a juvenile sexual offender, requiring him to register with authorities annually for ten years, the records show.

State law allows juvenile offenders to petition a judge to have a sex offender classification removed. Although the defendant successfully completed his probation requirements and treatment in 2013, his reclassification hearing wasn’t held until shortly before he turned 21 in 2017, records show. The judge’s order continuing the sex offender classification came three months later.

    How come these types of things don’t happen to the children of Judges and Politicians? Because they’re kids are all angels? Or because the charges get reduced so that no sex offender God forbid.

      I would think because anyone who arrests the children of judges and politicians usually ends up fired or discredited and their reports find their way to shredders.

    This is scary because with CA’s new tiered system, if a DA contests the de-registration, then will the judge side with the DA and for what reason? A 10-year wait could be even longer just because.

    • Dustin

      Judges nearly always side with the DA, particularly in SO or registry cases. If they don’t, the DA won’t write the court’s opinions any more. Or won’t give another mulligan on their next golf trip.
