Harmon Lingle and Mark Grosser v. State of Ohio et al., Case Nos. 2019-1247 and 2019-1309
Tenth District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
- Is a person with an out-of-state sex-offense conviction not required to register in Ohio as a "sexual predator" if the person can show that the home-state registration requirement isn't substantially similar to Ohio law because that requirement doesn't fit the definition of "sexual predator" in former R.C. 2950.01(E)?
- Does former R.C. 2950.01(F) provide an out-of-state sex offender who challenges the automatic classification in Ohio as a "sexual predator" with the right to a hearing to determine whether the offender is likely to commit a sex offense in the future?
