Notice: To enter and view the sex offender registrant portion of this website, readers must review the following Disclaimer and General Requirements for sex offender registration; and acknowledge having done so by clicking on one of the choices that appear at the end of this Disclaimer.

The descriptions of general requirements for sex offender registration, and the definitions of sex offender classifications are offered as guidelines only; and are stated in laypersons’ terms, which are not the precise words of Ohio statute.

Since July 1997, Ohio statute has required that an adult convicted of [or one having plead guilty to] certain sexually oriented offenses [rape, sexual battery, gross sexual imposition, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and other related statutes enumerated in Ohio statute] register with the Sheriff of the County in which the adult intends to live after being released from jail or prison.

The offender’s classification determines the frequency with which he/she must register with the Sheriff, and the duration of the registration requirement.

A classified sex offender is also required to notify with the Sheriff of the applicable county in person whenever the offender changes his/her residence within the county; whenever the offender moves to another county; and whenever the offender moves to another state.

Lucas County Sheriff John Tharp, directs his employees to make a good faith attempt to ensure that sex offender registration information complies with Ohio law as it evolves; and that the information is as current and accurate as it can be.

Registration information, which is provided by the offenders themselves, is verified when offenders fulfill their statutory obligations to register and to verify their current addresses.

Sex offenders sometimes do not fulfill their registration obligation; or do not fully disclose truthful and accurate information.

Other impediments to the complete, accurate, and timely transfer of sex offender registration sometimes occur, as well.

An adult or juvenile classified as a Tier II sex offender has been convicted of [adult] or found delinquent by reason of [juvenile] one or more sexually oriented offense[s].

Tier II sex offenders must register, every six months for twenty-five years with the Sheriff of the County in which the offender lives, works and attends school.

Some addresses or other data might no longer be current.
