AWA means Adam Walsh Act. Ohio was the only state to adopt this Act until after the housing crisis of 2008 when states needed money for funding. Many sex-offenders were not subject to the AWA since the state had not adopted it. These offenders are classified as Pre-AWA and do not follow the guidelines of the Adam Walsh Act unless they either volunteer to abide or do not assert their right to a Pre-AWA registration period.

dose that mean when they get out do they have to register as a sex offender
