Sex Crimes Prevention Act Information
In reading the following information, please be mindful of the fact that North Central State College is located on a campus that is open to the public, that the College maintains an “open door” admission policy, and that the College serves students from a variety of counties in Ohio.
The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student.
Information regarding individuals who are required to register as sex offenders can be obtained from the following sources:
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, with the assistance of the office of the Ohio Attorney General, has created a public database on the Internet called Electronic Sexual Offender Registration Notification or e-SORN. The e-SORN database can be accessed at http://www.esorn.ag.state.oh.us/Secured/p1.aspx.
According to a statement released 12-18-03 by State Attorney General Jim Petro, “users who visit e-SORN will find the name, address, type of offense and photo of each convicted sex offender that the Attorney General's office is permitted by law to include. The website is searchable by offender name, county, zip code and school district. It also provides links to county sheriff's offices websites. By law, the e-SORN public website may only contain information on offenders who have been convicted in adult criminal court.”
