Hyle v Porter

2-20-2008 Ohio:

Hyle v Porter

Hyle v Porter: Because R.C. 2950.031 was not expressly made retrospective, it does not apply to an offender who bought his home and committed his offense before the effective date of the statute.

The First District Court of Appeals found its judgment in this case to be in conflict with the judgment of the Second District Court of Appeals in Nasal v. Dover, 169 Ohio App.3d 262, 2006-Ohio-5584, 862 N.E.2d 571, and certified the record to this court for review and final determination. We determined that a conflict exists on the following issue: “Whether R.C. 2950.031—Ohio’s residency-restriction statute prohibiting certain sexually oriented offenders from living within 1,000 feet of a school—can be applied to an offender who had bought his home and committed his offense before July 31, 2003 (the effective date of the statute).” 112 Ohio St.3d 1487, 2007-Ohio-724, 862 N.E.2d 115.
