SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY
Ohioans now can check emails, phone numbers against sex offender registry for possible matches

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, July 3, 2014 11:29 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Ohioans can see whether phone numbers, email addresses or screen names belong to registered sex offenders under a new feature added to the state's online database.

Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the change Thursday in a news conference with the Buckeye State Sheriffs' Association.

The state's sex offender registry lists people convicted of sex crimes and labeled sex offenders. The public can search the database by name or location to find offenders.

The offenders are required to provide their home and work addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and screen names to county sheriffs' offices when they register.

The registry's new reverse-lookup feature will let people input numbers or online names to help determine if a registered sex offender has been communicating with them.
