For Sierah

Progress was made in the Ohio Statehouse regarding Sierah’s Law as it passed the Ohio House committee by an unanimous 12 to 0 vote. The law is named after Sierah Joughin who was murdered in summer 2016. The law, which also passed the state senate, would create a violent offender registry in Ohio. The family and those in support of the bill want those convicted of third-degree felonies and higher to register, therefore being more easily traceable. They said such a registry could have saved Sierah’s life. Insiders expect a vote in the full house either this Thursday or later next week. It would then head to Governor Kasich’s desk to be signed.
