Kettering Recreation Center members concerned with sex offender

KETTERING, Ohio -- A tier three sex offender is a member of the Kettering Recreation Complex, and some of the facility’s patrons are wondering why he is allowed near so many women and children.

Current laws require Marc Hodapp, a man convicted of rape twice and abduction three times in the 1970s and 1980s, to register with local authorities every 90 days.

Because he was convicted decades ago, Hodapp is not subject to registration laws passed in 2007 and 2008 that would prevent him from living within 1,000 feet of schools and day cares.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office must notify schools, day cares and the community within 1,000 feet of Hodapp's home of his status.

No law exists that prevents Hodapp from being a member of the complex even though a day care is part of the facility.
