COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives today passed Substitute Senate Bill 64, legislation that prohibits under the offense of “criminal child enticement” a person from knowingly soliciting, coaxing, enticing or luring a child for an unlawful purpose.


Sub. S.B. 64 tightens the law to specify that an offender must entice a child for an unlawful purpose in order for the offense to be considered “criminal child enticement.” The legislation arose following legal challenges to the current law and complaints that the existing statute may be too broad.


“This bill makes a needed correction to ensure that the intent of the original law is being carried out,” Rep. Romanchuk said. “It’s important that we have statutes in place to protect our children, and this particular bill is an important part of doing that.”


The House passed Sub. S.B. 64 with unanimous support.
