MA: Worcester’s sex-offender ordinance awaits court ruling on Lynn measure

WORCESTER — Local efforts to restrict where Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders can live in the city have been put on hold, pending the outcome of a legal challenge to a similar ordinance adopted by another community that is now before the state Supreme Judicial Court.

Councilor-at-Large Morris A. Bergman, chairman of the City Council Public Safety Committee, said it is his understanding that arguments regarding that residency ordinance are expected to be made before the SJC in April, with a decision likely to come out in June. Full Article

So every city, town, village and hamlet throughout the entire U.S. is attempting to establish their own residency restrictions! And yet none of them pay any attention to the fact that there is NO correlation between residency restrictions and recidivism!
(I suspect there’d be a greater impact on reducing sexual offenses if they banned teachers and coaches from school grounds and parks.)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
