Below is a description of the registration system for sex offenders in Ohio

On January 1, 2008 many changes become effective to the sex offender registration laws in Ohio. By that date Ohio Attorney Generals Office will have assigned each offender to a ‘Tier’ level. That level has been assigned based on the crime(s) of which the offender was convicted. A document showing the Tier levels and offenses may be seen by clicking on the link below marked ‘Tier Levels.’ Offenders, if they disagree with the Tier level in which they were assigned, may file documents in their local Common Pleas Court to challenge that assignment.

  • Tier 2 Offenders must now register every 180 days for 25 years (formerly one per year for 20 years)
  • Tier 3 Offenders must register every 90 days for life.
