Discuss Olissa Erdrick's answer to: What does pre awa oriented sex offender mean?

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.
