Prosecutor: Sex offender should move away from daycare


Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. filed a civil action to make registered sex offender Christopher M. Hannah move from his Troy Street address because it is within 1,000 feet of a child care facility or school.

Heck’s complaint in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court says Hannah’s apartment at 225 Troy St. is too close to a daycare center at 413 Valley St.

The complaint notes that on Oct. 27, 2017, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Det. Julie Stephens personally served Hannah a notice.

Heck “is authorized to bring this injunctive action in order to remove Defendant Hannah from the residence or occupancy of said premises located within Montgomery County,” the complaint states. Online maps estimate it’s a 3-minute walk between those addresses via Light Street.

Hannah, 36, served more than two years in prison after a 2012 Logan County case in which he was convicted of third-degree felony gross sexual imposition against a minor female victim younger than 13.

Logan County court records show rape charges originally were filed before being dismissed as part of a plea agreement. Records show the offense date in that case was in July 2009.

In October 2016, Heck filed to get registered sex offender Rodger D. Golden to move from 2251 Otello Ave. in Dayton because it was within 1,000 feet of Timberlane Elementary at 2131 Timber Lane.

The Montgomery County sex offender registry now lists Golden’s address as 2011 Needmore Rd. That civil action no longer shows up in online court records.
