Texas Megan's Law
Named after Megan Kanka, Megan's Law was passed into federal law in 1995. Megans Law requires that all states
develop a procedure for alerting the general public when a sexual offender is moves into their area.
Megan was only seven years old when a repeat sexual offender that lived accross the street from her family, abducted, rapped, and murdered her. It was concluded that had her family or other local residents had been aware that a convicted sexual offender was housed in their community, this assult would've been avoided. With that in mind, the U.S. Congress passed the "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994", aka Megan's Law, without any objections.
Since the law was put into effect, Texas has gone out of its way to protect its public by providing the most recent information relevant to convicted sexual offenders and their place of residence. The bill has proven that while sex crimes are still a problem in the U.S., acts committed by prior offenders are on a regression.
The information obtainable by the enactment of Megan's Law has continued to be a signifcant benefit in keeping one's family safe from the risk of sexual misconduct.
