A Dangerous Type Of Sex Offender Registry

September 7th, 2006

Government

The state of Ohio is trying to implement a special sex offender registry. It’s for people who have never been convicted of (or even charged with) a sex crime. Instead, certain people will be declared as sex offenders by a judge, and then be added to the registry. This “civil registry” is intended to handle Catholic clergy who are sex offenders but have never been charged criminally and haven’t lost a civil lawsuit. I guarantee, however, that the registry will be (mis)used for purposes far from the original intent. This is a bad idea.
