Sex Offenders To Live 1,000 Feet From Schools

Many sex offenders are going to have to find a new place to live in Rhode Island after lawmakers recently passed a law tripling the distance that they can live near a school.  Currently level three sex offenders have to live at least 300 feet away from a private or public school, but last week lawmakers raised the distance to one-thousand feet.  Convicted offenders have 30 days to find a new place.  Opponents of the new law worry that this will cause sex offenders to move frequently, or resort to living on the streets; which isn't safer for anyone.
