Under the circumstances, 25 years of registration is “grossly disproportionate” and tantamount to cruel and unusual punishment under the Ohio Constitution if not the Eighth Amendment.

The transcript shows that the justices are plainly unwilling to back off the court’s 2011 holding that the registration scheme is punitive, and seemed prepared, like the dissenting judge below, to invalidate the mandatory nature of the penalty in cases like Blankenship’s.

The bill required Sheriff's Office throughout the State to develop and implement a registration system for convicted sexual offenders.

The Sexual Offender Unit for the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office was developed and designed to inform, safeguard and prevent violent sexual crime in the community.

In 2011 the court ruled inthat the state’s registration scheme is punitive and thus may not constitutionally be applied retroactively, so it would be a short step for the court to find that the mandatory registration requirement constitutes cruel and unusual punishment in this case.

merits brief, Tyler Blankenship was working part-time at a department store and a few hours away from receiving his associate’s degree at Clark State Community College in Springfield when he had an affair with a 15-year-old girl.

Judge Mary Donovan dissented, commenting that “He was punished with a scarlet letter of 25 years duration … This classification carries significant restraints on Blankenship’s liberty and a social stigma that interferes with employability, travel and housing.” Under Ohio’s Adam Walsh law, Blankenship must register his work, school, and employment with the sheriff in the county he lives, and is subject to verification every six months for twenty-five years.
