Maine Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was enacted into federal law in 1995. Megans Law makes it mandatory for all states
put a method in place for informing the public when a sexual offender is located in their area.
Megan was only seven years old when a prior sex offender that lived accross the street from her family, abducted, violently rapped, and killed her. It was concluded that had her family or other community members had been alerted that a previous sexual offender was living in their neighborhood, this heinous act would have been avoided. 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 objections.
Ever since the law has been passed, Maine has made it a point to protect its public by providing the most up to date information relating to past sexual offenders and their place of residence. The legislation has shown that while sexual offenses are still a problem in this country, crimes committed by prior offenders are on a decline.
