The Ohio Supreme Court will resolve a split in the appellate jurisdictions over whether a sex offender must move when he lives within 1,000 feet of a school, and the offender has lived on the premises and committed his crime before the sex offender residency law was passed in 2003. The case is: Hyle v. Gerry R. Porter, Supreme Court Case No. 2006-2187. The documents filed in this case can be viewed at the Supreme Court Docket. The case being appealed is Hyle v. Porter, 2006-Ohio-5454, which held that the law can apply retroactively. The conflicting case, which held that the law can not apply retroactively is Nasal v. Dover, 2006-Ohio-5584. The 2003 law in question is SB 5, which enacted ORC 2950.031. ORC 2950.031 was later strengthened by the enactment of HB 473, effective 4-29-05.
