New Sex Offender Restrictions


Lawmakers have approved a bill which prohibits registered sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of a school or daycare center.

Friday's unanimous vote comes as the Legislature attempts to adjourn for the year.

The proposal also bars offenders from working or volunteering in a position where they would interact with minors. Some of the worst predators face lifetime satellite monitoring.

All offenders would face stiff registration requirements, giving authorities more chances to update addresses and photographs.

This law like the one is Geogria that recently passed is too broad. There are sex offenders that in my opinion deserve to die and then there are some that are now labeled sex offender by no or little fault of their own.
