California Sex Offender Law

The California Supreme Court has upheld California’s law restricting where registered sex offenders live, according to the L.A. Times. The law mandated that a registered sex offender had to live at least 2000 feet away from schools, parks, or any other place where children congregate. This law was challenged by sex offenders who claim there is no place they can live inside a city with this law.

Florida has a similar living restriction for sex offenders. They are not allowed to live within 1000 feet of places where children regularly congregate. Jacksonville is even more restrictive because it imposes a 2500 feet rule. This law has also been challenged by Jacksonville sex crime attorneys and is in the appellate process.
