Maine Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was enacted into federal law in 1995. Megans Law requires that all states
have a system in place for alerting the general public when a sexual offender is located in their neighborhood.
Megan was just seven years old when a previously convicted sexual predator that lived accross the street from her family, kidnapped, violently rapped, and murdered her. It was decided that had her family or other local residents had been alerted that a previous sexual predator was living amongst them, this heinous act could've been thwarted. With that in mind, the U.S. Congress legislated the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", also known as Megan's Law, without any opposition.
Since the law was enacted, Maine has gone out of its way to protect its offering the most current information relevant to previous sexual offenders and their current residency. The legislation has shown that while sexual offenses are still a occuring in this country, offenses committed by past offenders are on a decline.
