Texas Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was passed into federal law in 1995. Megan's Law makes it mandatory for each state
have a system in place for notifying local residents when a sexual offender is located in 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 determined that had her family or other residents in the communtiy had been aware that a repeated sexual offender was residing amongst them, this heinous act could've been avoided. With those thoughts, the U.S. Congress enacted the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", nicknamed Megan's Law, without any protests.
Since the law was passed, Texas has gone out of its way to protect its public by providing the most current information relating to past sexual offenders and their place of residence. The bill has shown that while sexual offenses are still a occuring in the U.S., crimes committed by past offenders are on a regression.
