Judge Says Three Convicted Sex Offenders Can't Be Charged

A Jefferson District judge dismissed charges against three convicted sex offenders who were arrested for living too close to schools and a youth treatment center.

The judge said the men can't be charged because they were convicted before a new state law went into effect. The new law bars sex offenders from living within 1000-ft. of the property line of places like schools and day care centers

The old state law required sex offenders to live at least 1000-ft. away from the building itself.

The new law applies to all offenders.

    If the new law applies to all offenders what is the difference. the judge is saying they cant be charged because it was before the new rule was in affect and then it states the new rule applys to all. i like the new rule much better. safer for our children!!!
