Loophole Closed On Sex Offender Law

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — The Assembly Committee on Public Safety has passed legislation with a 4-2 vote that will close a loophole in existing law by prohibiting any person placed on parole, who has been convicted of a violent sex crime against a high school age minor, from living within a quarter-mile from a public high school.

Presently, paroled sex offenders who have been convicted of sex crimes against minors are prohibited from living within one-quarter of a mile from elementary and junior high schools. A loophole in existing law does not prevent convicted pedophiles, especially those who are guilty of sex crimes against young teens, from living across the street from a high school.

The California Research Bureau, in their 2004 “Community and Supervision of Sex Offenders” catalogue, found that sexual re-offense was most likely in sexual deviants who have interest in children, and sex offenders are more likely to re-offend if they have had prior sex crime convictions.
