The facts in the case before us are not in dispute. In March 2002, a complaint was filed in Montgomery County Juvenile Court (J.C. No. A XXXX-XXXX 02), alleging that Dawson had committed a sexually-oriented offense at the age of 14. The juvenile court found Dawson to be a delinquent child in May 2002, following his admission to having committed gross sexual imposition in violation of R.C. 2907.05, which would have been a felony of the third degree if committed by an adult. At disposition, which was held on September 20, 2002, the juvenile court ordered Dawson into the custody of the Department of Youth Services (DYS) for a minimum of six months and a maximum period not to exceed Dawson's 21st birthday. However, the time in DYS was suspended, and Dawson was ordered to serve a period of probation until September 30, 2003. He was also ordered to attend the Dora Tate Juvenile Program for eight days, pay restitution, have no contact with the victim, and attend outpatient therapy after school at the Lighthouse Program. The juvenile court did not impose classification as a sex offender registrant at that time.
