COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Mike Henne (R-Clayton) 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 legislation enhances the work done on previous human trafficking bills, making Ohio’s laws even tougher for those who would imperil a child.”


The House passed Sub. S.B. 64 by a vote of 97-0.
