California cities and counties are grappling with residency rules involving paroled sex offenders.
State Supreme Court: Residency Restriction Of Jessica’s Law Violates Sex Offenders’ Constitutional Rights
California’s Supreme Court ruled Monday state corrections officials cannot prohibit all registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school or park as required by a 2006 voter-approved ballot measure.
The author of some of California’s most significant crime laws has called the U.S. Supreme Court order to release thousands of prison inmates “outrageous”.
A judge has temporarily blocked enforcement of a law restricting how close sex offenders can live to parks and schools in Los Angeles County.
Convicted sex offenders now face severe restrictions on where they can live, which is forcing them to communities like Wilmington.
