Some sex offenders could get distinctive green license plates

‘If pending legislation becomes law, Ohio’s most violent sex offenders would be branded with a modern day scarlet letter: fluorescent green license plates on their cars or trucks.

State Rep. Michael DeBose, D-Cleveland, and state Sen. Kevin Coughlin, R-Cuyahoga Falls, introduced bills that would require green plates for habitual and child-oriented sex offenders.

“A distinctive license plate would warn parents and children of the potential threat posed by sexual offenders,” Coughlin said.’
