COLUMBUS – State Rep. Al Cutrona (R-Canfield) announced he will be sponsoring legislation with the goal of preventing sex predators from working or volunteering in a position that affords extensive contact with minor children.

Current law in Ohio is far too lax on this issue. In fact, there is no current law in place to prevent a Tier III Sex Offender (poses a threat to the community and is at risk to re-offend) from coaching youth sports or from operating a candy store catering to minors. 

“Protecting our children will always be a top priority of mine and this legislation strives to accomplish that very goal,” said Cutrona. 

Specifically, the bill will restrict any Tier II or Tier III sex offender from serving in a capacity that affords them extensive contact with children. This legislation will help keep our children safe by closing loopholes in current law.

We must strengthen the protections for Ohio’s Children from sexual predators and this legislation is imperative to ensure our youth remain safe.
