Sex offenders ban on living distance to be changed

On Thursday the state corrections department announced that it is changing the policy for the living distance for registered sex offenders.

There are about 6,000 sex offenders in California that now have the opportunity to live closer to schools and parks.

This is a response to a state Supreme Court ruling that stated that the 8-year-old ban was unconstitutional.

While parole agents can approve or deny that sex offenders that they live more than 2,000 feet from where children gather (schools and parks), it can still bring in a bit of nervousness for parents.

These changes will take about 60 days to review the files of the sex offenders.
