Bill would add public indecency to sex offender list

12-3-2014 Ohio:

Columbus -- Individuals who expose their private parts or engage in sexual conduct in public in view of children could end up on the state's sex offender registry, under legislation being considered in the Ohio Senate.

SB 358 seeks to prohibit such behavior if it's "likely to be viewed by and affront minors" and would increase criminal penalties against perpetrators, according to an analysis by the state's Legislative Service Commission.

The bill had a first hearing Nov. 25 before the Ohio Senate's Criminal Justice Committee. ..Source.. by Marc Kovac, Capital Bureau
