Panel Wants Early Sex Offender Release Notice To Victims & Community

Sacramenot, CA — A task force is telling Governor Schwarzenegger that victims should get 90 days´ notice and communities 60 days before high risk sex offenders are paroled.

That would give communities time to work with prison officials to find acceptable housing for the sex offenders.

Task force members say the offenders should be intensively monitored with satellite tracking and polygraph tests.

Schwarzenegger set up the bipartisan task force in May after reports that paroled sex offenders were living near schools and other locations frequented by children, and were being moved regularly to avoid residency registration requirements.

The panel includes legislators and representatives of victims´ rights organizations, law enforcement agencies and local government.
