Neighbors concerned after registered sex offender moves feet away from elementary school
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Neighbors are concerned after they say a registered sex offender moved into their Rancho Bernardo community, just feet away from an elementary school playground.
____________, 32, was convicted of possession of child pornography and lewd and lascivious acts with a child in Tennessee in 2013.
Neighbors say they became concerned after ____ moved into a townhouse in their neighborhood weeks ago.
According to records on the Megan’s Law website, ____ lives on the 17000 block of Caminito Baya, about 100 feet away from a playground at Westwood Elementary School.
According to the Safe Task Force, which monitors local sex offenders, ____’s living situation is legal because of the California Supreme Court.
In 2015, the court tossed out blanket restrictions on where sex offenders may live. The ruling came after sex offenders said the restrictions made finding housing impossible for them. Authorities say while probation or parole agents can implement living restrictions, due to the fact that ____ is no longer on parole or probation, he is now allowed to live wherever he wants.
Neighbors say the rule doesn’t make sense. “I think the rules definitely need to be changed when it comes to sexual predators,” said Linda Vasquez.
