Section 2953.36(A) specifically excludes sexual offenses from record sealing. However, Sub. H.B. 431 revised O.R.C. 2953.36 to allow convictions under section 2907.04 of the Revised Code if a court has issued an order to terminate the offender's duty to register.

Lesser Included Offenses

Section 2953.36 ONLY includes unlawful sexual conduct convictions to be sealed. Sub. H.B. 431 failed to address a conviction which includes charges under BOTH 2907.04  and 2907.05, 2907.06, 2907.07 or 2907.31, even though disseminating matter harmful to juveniles is not a registrable offense under section 2950.01(A) of the Revised Code.
