Ohio -v- Santiago

8-11-2011 Ohio:

Ohio -v- Santiago [ Williams ]

Defendant-appellant Wilson Santiago (“defendant”) appeals the trial court’sclassifying him as a Tier III sex offender under Ohio’s Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (“ the AWA”), arguing that the retroactive application of this law is unconstitutional. After reviewing the facts of the case and pertinent law, we reverse. (Most unusual, even someone in prison for life, is entitled to reversal on classification level)
