Maine Megan's Law
Getting its name from Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was enacted into federal law in 1995. Megan's Law makes it mandatory for each state
develop a procedure for informing the public when a sexual offender is relocated into their neighborhood.
Megan was merely seven years old when a prior sexual predator that lived accross the street from her family, kidnapped, rapped, and murdered her. It was determined that if her family or other community members had been aware that a previous sexual offender was housed in their neighborhood, this crime could've been prevented. On that train of thought, the U.S. Congress passed the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", aka Megan's Law, without any protests.
Ever since the law has been passed, Maine has strived to protect its citizens the most up to date information relating to past sexual offenders and their place of residence. The law has shown that while sexual offenses are still a problem in this country, acts committed by prior offenders are on a downturn.
