Maine Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was enacted into federal law in 1995. Megan's Law requires that all states
develop a procedure for informing the general public when a sexual offender is relocated into their area.
Megan was just seven years old when a previously convicted sexual predator that resided accross the street from her family, kidnapped, violently rapped, and killed her. It was agreed that had her family or other residents in the communtiy had been alerted that a previous sexual offender was living in their neighborhood, this crime would have been avoided. With that in mind, the U.S. Congress passed the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", nicknamed Megan's Law, without any resistance.
Ever since the law was passed, Maine has strived to protect its residents the most up to date information regarding past sex offenders and their place of residence. The law has proven that while sexual offenses are still a occuring in the United States, crimes committed by past offenders are on a downturn.
