Megan's Law is named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, a New Jersey girl who was raped and killed in 1994 by a twice convicted sexual offender who had moved in across the street from the Kankas--without their knowledge.
On May 17, 1996, President Clinton signed the Federal "Megan's Law," which required the release of relevant information to protect the public from sexually violent offenders.
New Hampshire's Megan's Law arms the public with certain information on the whereabouts of dangerous sex offenders so that local communities may protect themselves and their children.
The availability of this information is designed to enhance public safety and awareness.
