Sex Offender Laws in Ohio A sex offender is generally referred to as a person who has committed a crime of sexual nature. Once a sex offender is placed into a Tier he or she must follow the registration requirements of that specific Tier. However, according to Ohio law, compulsory registration is not required for juveniles who belong to this tier.
Most of these requirements are quite serious and if they are not followed properly, it may culminate in re-incarceration. However, for juvenile sex offenders, the judges have the responsibility of determining the tier. However, this process can be shoved off after 25 years only if the offender does not commit any further sex offense or felony and complete his or her probation or parole.
