Ohioans Can Search Sex Offender Phone, Email Info

The state’s sex offender registry lists people convicted of sex crimes and labeled sex offenders. The public can search the database by name or location to find offenders.
The offenders are required to provide their home and work addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and screen names to county sheriffs’ offices when they register.
The registry’s new reverse-lookup feature will let people input numbers or online names to help determine if a registered sex offender has been communicating with them.
