In addition to prison time and fines, those who are convicted of sex crimes in Ohio are typically subject to sex offender registration. In 2017, there are approximately 20,000 people on the sexual registry in the state.
There are three tiers of classification for sex offenders. The most serious sex crimes are classified under “Tier 3” registration, punishable by a lifetime registry every 90 days. The lowest classification is “Tier 3” registration, which requires an annual resignation for 15 years. In some circumstances, however, registration can be shortened to 10 years.

Tier 3 – Lifetime registration every 90 days
