OK: Governor Fallin Signs Bill Barring Sex Offenders from Living Near Their Victims

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin today signed a bill that helps protect victims from their sex offenders.

Fallin signed House Bill (HB) 1124, which prohibits sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet and loitering within 1,000 feet from their victims’ homes. Under current Oklahoma law, sex offenders are banned from living near places like schools and playgrounds, but it does not apply to a sex offender living near his or her adult victim. Full Article

    Why does this law only apply to sex offenders? Do no other crimes involve victims?

      Haven’t you heard? We’re more dangerous than murderers and drug dealers!

      On a serious note, you have a point. You can try to murder someone, then be released and allowed to live near your victim…smh

  2. Facts should matter

    “Dangerous loophole.”

    Yes. Megan’s Law is a dangerous loophole in the Constitution that needs to be closed. I strongly agree.

    Mame another human(s) on your 2nd dwi? no registry, no 12 years of weekly forced therapy. Ugh

    “Justice for Danyelle Act of 2018”

    Umm, didn’t she get her justice via the criminal trial? Or does she have a lifelong “right” to it, trumping those of the person who served the sentence imposed? I see this law as getting struck down pretty easily. Just one more presence and residency restriction for sensible, Constitution-abiding judges to knock down.

    So this just gave perpetrators the legal right to know where their victim live.

    Perp to gov: Hey, I need the address of my victim.

    Gov: No.

    Perp: You breaking the law by not giving me that information?

    Gov: Huh? WTF how did we get here?

      Excellent point! It’s the only true way the RC can ensure compliance. Either that or the State will have to become some sort of mediator, where the RC submits a residence and the State checks to see if it’s too close to the victim. Just what’s needed, another useless state bureaucracy.
