Southern District of Ohio Rules Against Sex Offenders

The United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio (Western Division), has decided that the sex offenders who challenged an Ohio law dealing with their residency lacked the proper standing to bring the suit in the first place. Section 2950.031 of the Ohio Revised Code forbids registered sex offenders from establishing a residence or occupying a residential premises that is located within 1,000 feet of a school premises.

The court's holding?: "In this case, Plaintiffs Howard, Slack, Borek and Pacheco have failed to adduce any evidence that they live within 1,000 feet of a school premises."
