Bill Proposed to Monitor Sex Offenders

Tools

By Alabama News Network

Two Alabama lawmakers say they want to place stricter regulations on places that house groups of convicted sex offenders.

State law already prevents sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school or child care center of a victim.

But two republican state representatives are proposing a bill that would require facilities housing groups of sex offenders to have a live in monitor.

They say they're sponsoring the legislation because groups of sex offenders who have finished prison sentences are living in clusters in some parts of their districts.
