AbstractMore than half of U.S. states have passed legislation to restrict the locations of where sex offenders can live, often keeping them from living within a given distance from schools, parks, school bus stops, and day care centers. While these laws enjoy support from many quarters, some opponents of these laws state that the cost of enforcing these laws is not justified by the protection it gives, and that these laws often force offenders into homelessness or cause them to provide false information to sex-offender registries as they try and find a place to live.
