Maine Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was passed into federal law in 1995. Megans Law makes it mandatory for all states
have a system in place for informing local residents when a sexual offender is located in their neighborhood.
Megan was just seven years old when a previous sexual offender that resided accross the street from her family, abducted, rapped, and killed her. It was agreed that if her family or other community members had been aware that a repeated sexual predator was living in their neighborhood, this heinous act 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 objections.
Ever since the law has been enacted, Maine has gone out of its way to protect its public by providing the most current information relating to past sexual offenders and their whereabouts. The legislation has shown that though sex crimes are still a danger in the U.S., acts committed by prior offenders are on a decline.
