Sex Offenders In California Face New Regulations

CA Police BadgeThe subject of what should be done with registered sex offenders always leads to a myriad of questions. Should sexual offenders be set free and left alone after completing a prison sentence? Could offenders benefit from long-term rehabilitative treatment? Would residency restrictions that ban pedophiles from living within 2,000 feet of any location where children regularly congregate help or hurt matters?

In California, one high-profile case is changing the rules for registered sexual offenders. Phillip Garrido, the man accused of kidnapping 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years, is being used as a striking example of why it is essential for law enforcement agents to keep a closer watch on registered offenders.
