CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

If you have a loved one living in a nursing home or rehab facility, they may be living next to a registered sex offender and not even know it.

A new Ohio law took effect Sept. 15 changes that - but some worry the new requirements don't go far enough.

FOX19 Investigates reporter Hagit Limor is live at 10 p.m. Monday with how the new law is designed to close a loophole in the old law, but there's a catch.

The old law had requirement notification to anyone living within 1,000 feet of a registered sex offender. 

But nursing and rehab facilities were not required to tell residents and their families when a sex offender moved right into the facility - under the same roof.

Tune in at 10 p.m. Monday to see how many sex offenders are living in our area nursing homes and if the residents or their families were ever notified. 

Hagit also interviewed Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.
